As found example of the Starr percussion carbine made by Starr Arms Company Yonkers, New York. Total production estimated to be around 26,000 produced between 1862-1865. Single shot .54 caliber breech loader with 21-inch round barrel fastened by a single brass barrel band. The wood stock has nicks and scratches from heavy field use with a faintly visible inspector's cartouche visible on the left side opposite the lock. All markings are strong with the serial number 4682 visible when the breech block is lowered. An interesting side note is that several Starr carbines in that serial number range were issued to company G of the 1st. Colorado cavalry. The brass butt plate and barrel band have a dark almost black untouched patina along with all the other metal parts. The barrel is dirty and uncleaned with rust pitting visible in places. The action along with all the mechanical parts function properly and are free from any issues.
