Generally smooth metal with plum colored barrel, remainder of steel parts showing traces of case colors. Fine bore, mechanically perfect. Walnut stock with a 2" hairline forward of the lever mechanism, an old 1 1/2" shallow chip at the sling ring. 3/4" initials at the carved butt tang otherwise the stock with just some scattered shallow dents. A very nice untouched example of this very scarce Civil War carbine that rarely appears available for sale.
