this auction is for the 1844 Austrian Kammerbuchse carbine pictured. cut down to carbine length probably during the civil war. These rifles originally had chamber breeches that stopped the ball from touching the powder. They had a 33 1/4" tapered, octagon to round rifled barrel in .69 caliber. Many of these with the new Augustin lock were imported by the South. Some were converted to percussion by adding a new breech and hammer. this one was cut down to 35.5" total length with the barrel at 19.5". the muzzle end was cut crooked by a hacksaw or something long ago and has since been straightened by cutting off another 1/16" or so on a bandsaw, the cutoff piece is included. the original sights were missing so a new rear sight was lengthened with weld and added to the dovetail slot and a new front sight was sweated on. these should have the correct sight plane for the barrel and front sight was left tall so can be filed down some if needed. the coolest thing about this one is that when it was originally cut down, lead probably from musket balls in the field, was used to re-attach the nose cap and ramrod keeper on the bottom and the initials TVI are carved in the barrel channel of the stock and on the underside of the barrel and on the inside of the brass buttplate. this was more than likely done for use on horse back at close quarters. this is the chamber breech model and the chamber breech is in good shape with pitting inside but looks useable. chamber breech threads and barrel threads are great. barrel is marked FERD FRUWIRTH on top. heavily rifled bore is in good shape with some pitting inside but still looks very shootable. huge bore looks to be around .75 caliber. lock has been converted from augustin to percussion and is dated 854 for 1854. stock is in good shape with an old repair to the wrist and has a split at the front but the noscap holds it tight. nothing is stuck or rusted on, everything unscrews and comes apart, including the original nipple. a great example of a civil war rifle that was probably converted to percussion by the south and cut to carbine length by a soldier during the civil war. a new correctly threaded nipple and musket capper are included in case you want to shoot it. buyer pays actual shipping cost, antique so no FFL needed. paypal or usps money order.
