British Flintlock Coaching Carbine By Barbar

.64 caliber, 16" round two-stage iron barrel with baluster turned rings as the transition. The breech of the barrel is stamped with two London proof marks, and an unidentified proof mark. The rounded lock with round goose-neck cock and rounded iron pan is marked Barbar, and features a unique latching safety device, a variant on the dog lock principle.  The left side of the stock features an inlaid section of brass with a rotating sling swivel, instead of a side plate. The brass trigger guard features an acorn finial. The brass thumb rest features an engraved crest of an arm coming out of the ground holding a flag. Stock with brass tipped ramrod, one brass ferrule and a cupped brass buttplate.

Condition:

The iron barrel has some speckling. The brass has a very nice patina throughout. The stock has an old repair forward of the trigger guard. There is a crack on the fore end, beneath the muzzle, and another on the reverse between the flat and the trigger guard. The stock also shows scattered nicks and dings. The bore and action are very good.
