This is a tough to find gun in nice condition like this.This is the Civil War production Starr patent cavalry carbine. According to Flayderman's guide there were only 20,601 of these Starr carbine made and they were only made between 1862 and 1865. This one is in very fine condition especially compared to most of them that you encounter. This one has the full-length barrel with the front and rear sights intact. Near the rear sight it has the "STARR FIREARMS YONKERS, NY" stamped into the barrel. The barrel retains the majority of the crisp rifling visible. The action works crisply on the second position and it slips off of the first position. The Starr Firearms Company markings are clear on the lockplate and on the top of the tang as well. The tang mark reads STARR'S PATENT SEPT. 14TH 1858". The stock has a very pleasing look and doesn't have the usual chip out of the bottom of the stock by the buttplate that most of them have. On the flat of the shoulder stock by the frame it has the two cartouches still visible. This is where the gun was approved for military use by the Government inspector. It also has the original saddle ring intact. This is a very pretty Starr cavalry carbine from the Civil War and it is better than most of the ones that you encounter these days.
