Warner Carbine

.50RF 20" round barrel, S/N 200. Blued finish, brass receiver, triggerguard and buttplate, walnut stock and forend. Left side of receiver marked in three-lines: JAMES WARNER SPRINGFIELD, MASS. / WARNER'S / PATENT. Martially sub-inspected throughout with a capital "L," serial number on buttplate. Correct pattern rear sight, saddle ring on left of frame. Only 1,501 were produced ca 1864. This is a very scarce secondary US martial carbine from the Civil War period.


Good to very good. Barrel cleaned to bright with a mottled and lightly oxidized gray patina. Brass with a lovely butterscotch patina. Markings on receiver remain clearly legible. Mechanically functional. Fine bore. Stock and forend lightly sanded with several small grain cracks in both, but nothing major or structural.
