US BREECHLOADING M1843 HALL-NORTH CARBINE DATED 1846

$2,100.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-2867

Presented here is a Model 1843 Hall-North .52 caliber, breechloading percussion carbine, sometimes referred to as a Side Lever Hall. Top of flat receiver is clearly stamped with a five-line address that reads “U. S. / S. NORTH / MIDLTN / CONN. / 1846”.  Carbine has a 21” round barrel with two barrel bands that secure it to the walnut stock.

All metal surfaces were originally finished with a brown lacquer, some of which remains. Receiver is case hardened but no color remains. The action of raising and lowering the breech is a little halting at times but does operate properly. Hammer works properly. Nipple is original and in good condition. Steel barrel has no signs of pitting but it, and the receiver, have heavy mottling.  Top flat of the barrel has a notched rear sight. Bore is a bit dirty but has very good rifling. Should clean up some.

Stock is of black walnut and shows a few minor dings and dents along with an old small piece of wood that is missing on the left side, just to the rear of the sling bar mount. There are no visible cartouche marks. Weapon retains its original button-head ramrod. Sling bar and ring mounted to left side is tight. Several of the screwheads on the weapon show wear.

This model was produced over the longest period and in the largest quantities of all of Hall’s many variations. This arm was carried by the 1st & 2nd US Dragoons during the Mexican War and during the Civil War some units from Missouri, Kansas, New York, Wisconsin, and Indiana carried them. [ad] [ph:L]
