CIVIL WAR Antique SHARPS New Model 1863 Carbine
Sharps Saddle Ring Carbine in Original Format!
Here we present an antique Sharps New Model 1863 Cavalry Carbine, made in Hartford, Connecticut during the last two years of the American Civil War. There is a reason the good name of Sharps has lasted to the current day, reaching nearly legendary status. Many of these were made and used during the War, and they were popular with the troops. They were handy, accurate, powerful and reliable guns, and many went to the Western Frontier as trappers, explorers and settlers moved that way.
The left side is marked “C. SHARPS PAT/SEPT 12TH 1848”. The top of the barrel is marked “NEW MODEL 1863”. The right side is marked “R.S. LAWRENCE PAT./APRIL 12TH 1859”. And also “C. SHARPS’PAT./OCT. 5TH 1862”.
The overall condition is very good. The metal surfaces have a nice gray patina with case colors still visible. The markings are mostly legible. The bore is in good shape with strong rifling. The stock is in good shape with honest wear; it remains smooth and solid. The action on this carbine is excellent.
