Item No.: 8368 Price : $1,950.00
Description :
Here is an original, Civil War, Starr Cartridge Cavalry Carbine manufactured by the Starr Arms Company of Yonkers, New York. Similar to the earlier .54 caliber percussion carbine, the cartridge Starr fired a .52 caliber rimfire cartridge. Only 5,002 were produced in 1865. The first 1,000 were delivered to the Winchester Ordnance Depot in Winchester, Va. on March 9, 1865 with the balance arriving by May 25, 1865. The Starr Arms Co. went out of business in 1867. This carbine is in very good condition. The majority of the carbine has developed a smooth brown patina. The lock plate and hammer retain about 80% of their case colors. The action works well. The bore is very good with just a few small pits. It is mostly bright and shiny with sharp rifling. The stock is very fine with few dings or scratches. The forearm shows a little more wear with the usual dings and scratches from use. There is no cartouche on the stock. The cartridge Starr is far more scarce than its percussion predecessor. Stock no. 22036
