These Starr cartridge carbines were produced early in 1865 with deliveries being completed by May of that year. Except for the breech mechanism they are similar to the percussion version.

Round barrel is 21.00 inches long and chambered for .52 rimfire. The surface of the barrel on this weapon is turning a plumb brown and has moderate to heavy mottling with surface scratching. Small iron blade sight is attached above the muzzle and the rear notch sight has a flip-up leaf for long range. Stamped forward of the rear sight is “STARR ARMS CO. YONKERS N.Y.” but this is faint due to oxidation and surface dirt. Bore is dark and dirty with fair rifling and what looks to be scattered pitting. Right side of the barrel at breech is marked “31715 A.” Vice marks are visible on either side of the barrel at breech.

Lock, receiver and hammer have hints of case colors but are turning dark. Lock is faintly marked behind hammer “STARR ARMS CO. YONKERS N.Y.” Action operates properly. Stamped behind the breech is “STARR’S PATENT SEPT. 14th 1858.” Receiver screw heads show wear.

Two piece stock is in good condition with light surface dirt and the usual small scratches and scuffs, wrist has two faint inspector’s cartouches. Left side has saddle ring attached.

Buttplate and triggerguard are dark. [ad]
