This is an original, Model 1833 Hall-North U.S. Percussion Carbine. Manufactured in 1838 by Simeon North of Middletown, Ct., it is a breech-loading carbine of .52 caliber with a ram-rod bayonet in the fore-stock.

The .52 caliber Halls were manufactured from 1836 to 1839 with only 6,133 produced. The 2nd U.S. Dragoons were armed with these carbines for their initial service in Florida. This carbine is in antique good condition. there is no finish left and the gun exhibits overall fine pitting.

The bore is dark with some rust patches. The chamber of the breech block is rusted, as well. The stock is very good with a number of small dings and scratches from use. This is one of the scarcer U.S. Martial arms. Stock no. 29791
