Antique SHARPS & Hankins 1862 NAVY Carbine

One of 6,686 Purchased by Navy During Civil War

Here we present an antique Sharps & Hankins Model 1862 Navy Carbine. Made from 1862-65, the total production of the Navy Carbine was only 6,686, making this quite a scarce representative of a Civil War long arm.

These carbines are believed to have seen extensive service aboard various vessels during the American Civil War. Being that they were intended for use on the water, the Navy carbine was factory fitted with a very tight leather cover to prevent corrosion on the barrel.

The shape of the carbine is distinctly Sharps (much like their pepperboxes), and operates a bit differently than other carbines of the era. The trigger guard doubles as a lever, which is opened by pressing a small tab inside the smaller loop of the lever. Opening the lever slides the barrel away from the recoil shield for loading and unloading. Great elevating rear sight and brass butt-plate.

This specimen is in very good condition. Nearly all of the original leather barrel shroud remains 150 years later, no small feat. All markings are clear and legible. The walnut stock is solid. The bore has clear rifling with just a bit of pitting. The action is fine. The lever retention latch is damaged, causing the lever to travel slightly when held upright.

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is round and 24 inches in length.

Caliber: .52 rimfire

Bore is in very good condition and the firing mechanism is fine.

Overall condition as seen in photos.
