CIVIL WAR Antique UNION Gallager CAVALRY Carbine
Used by Ohio, Tennessee and West Virginia Cavalry!
Here we present an antique Gallager Carbine, made by the company Richardson & Overman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from 1860 through May of 1865. Ironically, the designer of this Union carbine, Mahlon J. Gallager, was a native South Carolinian, living in Savannah, Georgia, when he invented and received a patent for this carbine. 18,000 carbines were made in total. Per Flayderman, “The Gallager saw extensive service during the Civil War. Among the many cavalry regiments armed with it were the 2nd, 3rd and 6th Ohio, the 13th Tennessee and the 3rd West Virginia.”
This example is in overall good condition. The metal is dark and the case colors muted. The markings are clear and legible. The walnut stock is solid, smooth and dark. The bore is sharp and clean. The action is strong.
