Sharps produced not only gang moulds for its rifles and carbines, but single-bullet moulds like this one for the .52 caliber New Model 1863. The mould casts a single flat-based bullet with grease grooves and has a pincer end to act as a sprue cutter. Soldiers were generally firing prepackaged ammunition from contractors and arsenals, but as a back-up one of these was to be supplied with every five carbines according to Ordnance Department correspondence.

The handles are full length and the block opens and closes easily. “New Model 1863” and “52” is present on the flat of one handle. The metal is largely brown and gray, with lots of small dings and pockmarks from rough handling, but the bullet cavity is well defined and this is a key accessory for a Sharps, one of the most well-liked and widely used cavalry carbines during the war.
