Item ID #2127

These were made by A.H. Waters Company of Milbury, Massachusetts. They were made from 1855-1856. Less than an estimated 1500 were made. 1200 were known to have been sold to the U.S. This carbine is .54 caliber with a 22 1/2" barrel. Bore is by far the best I have seen in one of these. It is bright and shiny and will rate a very easy eight on a one to ten scale. Action is tight and works as it should. Some blue and case color remains. Wood to metal fit is very good. Wood is nice. It shows use, but has no issues. These are not seen very often. It will make an excellent addition to your collection.
