BALLARD 1st MODEL 44 CALIBER CIVIL WAR MARTIALLY MARKED CARBINE
Item ID #1792
Bore in the 22" barrel is bright and shiny. Lands and grooves are strong. It will rate an easy seven on a one to ten scale. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Stock is cartouched on the left side. Inspector markings are complete, including the MM on the extractor. Wood is nice with a repair on the left wrist at the frame. Numbers match. I have taken a lot of pictures which fairly and accurately show the condition. Martially marked Ballard's are not seen real often. This Ballard will make a nice addition to your Civil War Carbine collection.
