Sharps New Model of 1859 Carbine .52 Caliber Paper Cartrige - ANTIQUE  Guns > Rifles > Sharps Rifles - Pre-1899
Description: This is a very clean Sharps 1859 carbine with 22 inch barrel. It is a breech loader which takes a .52 caliber paper cartridge. It has not been converted to metallic cartridges. The bore is bright with strong rifling and very little shallow pitting. Mechanics are all functioning and complete. The pellet priming mechanism is also in good condition and functional. This model was made from 1859 to 1866. The serial number is 59888, so it was probably manufactured during the Civil War. There were a total of 33,000 carbines made, with serial numbers between 30,000 and 75,000. This gun shows quite a bit of patina'd original blue finish, and a trace of case colors here and there. There is no serious pitting except around the percussion nipple on the top of the block.All metal markings are clear and inspector marks and cartouche are visible on the stocks.
