Well Marked Military Model 1863 Pattern Civil War Sharps Cavalry Carbine
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a good looking weapon! It is an original and classic Civil War Sharps cavalry carbine. This is the model 1863 and is so marked on the top of the barrel. It also has the Sharps Rifle Company maker mark and Hartford, Connecticut production location. The lockplate has the clear Sharps patent mark and dates. The action works crisply on all positions. As you can see the lockplate still has a fine amount of the original factory case colors. It has the serial number of "96,414" on the tang of the frame and it matches the number underneath the barrel. This number is well within the Civil War production ranges. The barrel is full-length and has the original front and rear sight intact. Along the top of the barrel, you can see the "NEW MODEL 1863" marking as well as the Sharps maker marking and Hartford, Connecticut production location. The bore of the gun has nice lands and grooves still visible. The stock is a furniture grade walnut and you can still see the inspector cartouches underneath the saddle ring bar. These stamps let us know that the gun is a military model rather than being a civilian purchased one. Several of the initials are that of "E.A.W." and they stand for the inspector, Elisha C. Williams. The stock has a gorgeous look all over that you can tell was used but never abused. This is a great looking desirable Civil War military model Sharps cavalry carbine that is a step above most of the ones you encounter.
