Please click the image for a larger version
Burnside percussion 5th model cavalry carbine. Serial number 11910 on receiver, number on block is unclear but appears to be non matching. Metal parts have a dark patina overall with some uncleaned rust and scattered pitting. Rear sight is missing the 500 yard leaf, hinge pin is chipped off, ring bar screw a modern aged replacement, and screw in the frame tang is a non original replacement. Stock shows a good deal of wear and use, a dark appearance overall, missing a small piece above the lock, some slivering around the frame tang, crack in wrist, a couple cracks in the forearm and some minor slivering in the forearm. Nipple is a somewhat modern replacement. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
