Beautiful Military Model .54 Caliber Civil War Starr Patent Cavalry Carbine
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tough to find gun in beautiful condition. This is the Civil War production Starr patent cavalry carbine. According to Flayderman's guide there were only 20,601 of these Starr carbine made and they were only made between 1862 and 1865. This one is in very nice condition and is serial numbered 20,680. This one has the full-length barrel with the front and rear sights intact. Near the rear sight it has the "STARR FIREARMS YONKERS, NY" stamped into the barrel. The barrel retains a fine amount of the rifling still visible. On the outside of the barrel it has a beautiful plum color. The action works on both of the positions. The block drops just like it should. The clip that holds the triggerguard in place is present. The Starr Firearms Company markings are clear on the lockplate and on the top of the tang as well. The tang mark reads "STARR'S PATENT SEPT. 14TH 1858". The stock has a very pleasing look and doesn't have the usual chip out of the bottom of the stock by the buttplate that most of them have. The stock has a very dark color and a pleasing look. One thing that I love about this stock is that you can see the saddle wear. Can you imagine how long this one spent in the saddle to create this much wear. The side of the barrel has the initials "H.G.S." stamped into the metal. This is where the gun was approved for military use by the Government inspector, Henry G. Smith. This lets us know that the gun is a military model instead of being a civilian purchased gun. It also has the original saddle ring intact on the frame. The shoulder stock of the gun has the remnants of the inspector cartouche stamp still visible under the saddle ring. They are the script style cartouche of "STB" that stands for the inspector, Samuel T Bugbee. This is a very pretty Starr cavalry carbine from the Civil War.
