Burnside 5th Model breechloading percussion carbine. Serial number 16203 on frame, 15203 on breechblock, probably a factory error. Following parts are noted as missing: forearm screw escutcheon, ring bar, ring, and part of hammer. Part of the lever pivot pin is broken off, and several screws are missing. Metal parts have an untouched rust patina overall with some scattered pitting. Stock shows scattered moderate handling marks, has a good cartouche opposite the lock, light crack near the rear lock screw, and large piece missing from toe of butt. Lock appears to be mechanically complete and functional inside, but has not been tested. Breechblock is slightly misaligned when lever is closed. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
