Description

This fairly nice looking carbine was likely to have originally been a flintlock long rifle in the early 1800’s which was then cut down to a carbine and converted to percussion around the 1820’s/30’s, as was common place at the time to do so.

Despite signs of it’s age including small rust patches and a crack in the wood in front of the metal panel covering the trigger mechanism, the rifle still retains many of it’s attractive qualities. Overall the rifle is in a fine condition with the wood still being intact. Most of the metal still has a nice shine to it and what look to be flower patterns still very visible.  Truly this would make a marvellous wall mount or shelf display piece.
