Please click the image for a larger version
Burnside 5th model percussion breechloading carbine. No visible serial number. This uncleaned gun was coated in black paint and has extensive rust apparent underneath the paint. All parts are frozen in place except the trigger, which still has spring tension. Gun is complete except for ring bar, ring, and part of the lever pivot pin broken off. Forearm is missing a small piece of wood from the forearm on the right side in front of the band, and there is some insect damage to the buttstock near the buttplate. A faint cartouche is still visible opposite the lock. This gun could represent an enjoyable restoration project or display as-is for that "battlefield pickup" look. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
