Original Antique Prussian Percussion Saddle Ring Cavalry Carbine

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a fascinating little saddle ring carbine, just 34 inches in overall length with a 19-inch barrel.

Features include iron trigger guard, barrel band, side plate assembly with saddle bar and ring. The iron nose cap is fitted with a brass blade sight and the butt plate is also of comprised of substantial brass.

There are the remains of OBENDORF on the top of the barrel and the lock is faintly marked "KONG..........FABRIK..." The hammer is of classic Germanic shape and there is a chance that in fact this Carbine was once flintlock and was converted, but that is just speculation.

A most attractive saddle ring cavalry carbine very possibly imported before the U.S. Civil War giving it loads of research potential.
