Description :
This is an original, Civil War 2nd Model Maynard Cavalry Carbine manufactured by the Massachusetts Arms Company of Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts. Also known as the Model 1863, the Maynard was a breech loading, percussion arm of .50 caliber. About 20,202 2nd Model Maynard Carbines were produced from 1863-1865. Cavalry units known to have been issued the Maynard were the 9th and 11th Indiana and the 11th Tennessee. This Maynard is in fine condition. The barrel retains about 95% of its original factory blued finish. The frame, lever, and hammer have turned a smooyh brown. The frame retains traces of its case colored finish, but is primarily a mottled brown and pewter. The metal has been lightly cleaned around the markings. Both the bore and the mechanics of this carbine are excellent. The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling. Lock up is tight. The stock is in fine condition, with just a few small dings and scratches from use. There are two crisp inspector's cartouches on the left wrist of the stock. The Maynard was renowned for its accuracy. If you would like to shoot an original, this one, with its great bore and tight action, will be perfect for you. Stock no. 21606
