Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very nice and complete Civil War cavalry carbine of the Burnside patent. This is the classic style so often used by cavalrymen of the Civil War. Union General Ambrose Burnside, held the patent on this design of gun but had sold his interest in the company before the Civil War started. On the side of the lockplate it has the maker's mark of the "BURNSIDE RIFLE Co." as well as the production location of Providence, Rhode Island stamp. It has matching production serial numbers of 17,785 The mechanics of the gun function well on all positions. The barrel is full-length and still retains an excellent amount of rifling. Along the top of the barrel you can still see the "CAST STEEL 1862" stamping in the metal. It has both the front and rear original sights intact. The rear sight still has the original leaf intact. The stock has a nice dark tone. There are very faint traces of the inspector cartouche in the wood up near the frame. Several of the parts have the small inspector letter initials still clearly visible. These are the stamps of the U.S. Government inspectors that approved the gun for military service. It has the original saddle bar and ring present to go along with the sling swivel on the underside of the stock. This is an attractive complete original popular Civil War Burnside cavalry carbine.
