    Pistol only, no shoulder stock. A very nice example of this novel handgun/ carbine which saw extensive service in the American West in the hands of the 1st and 2nd U.S. cavalry.

    Condition: Metal generally smooth and bright with some light pitting at breech and a couple of very small, indeed negligible, spots on the lock. Nicely marked with eagle on primer door and "U. S./ Springfield/1856". V P and eagle head proofs at breech. Bore good, rifling weak at muzzle. Wood excellent, just a few minor dents with crisp inspector's cartouche. Brass furniture perfect with nice patina. Retains the original swivels, and two-leaf 400 yard rear sight. The ramrod and swivels are correct replacements, otherwise completely original.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
