Nice condition rare carbine manufactured by Bilharz, Hall & Company of Pittsylvania Court House, Virginia. Relatively small production estimated to be around 700 produced between 1863 through 1864. This is an early production carbine serial number 17 and also distinguished by the brass nose cap. The later production carbines after approximate serial number 350 usually have pewter nose caps. The letter P is visible on the left side of the barrel with pitting around the bolster from use. The CSA marking is not visible due to the pitting around the bolster area. The barrel overall has a nice brown patina and also has an unusual brass nipple. The wood is nice with minor erosion present behind the nipple and bolster area. The ram rod is incorrect and is missing the sling swivel which the buyer can have easily replaced.
