"S. C. ROBINSON CONFEDERATE SHARPS. SN 2468. Cal. 52. This fabulous, historic carbine, identified by inscription on the stock to a member of "Stuart's Cavalry". Also written on the side of the stock "MOBILE, ALABAMA". Stuart's Cavalry was one of the hardest fighting calvary units in the Civil War and Lee had come to rely so much on Stuart's elite and fleet ability that his absence during the onset of the Battle of Gettysburg was a tremendous loss to Lee and in his mind, in part, resulted in the defeat at this monumental battle for the South. This is a nice, orig and complete example of the earliest made Confederate Sharps carbines. SN appears externally on lock and frame. Lock is marked "SC Robinson / Arms Manufactory / Richmond Va / 1862" and bbl is marked behind rear sight "Richmond Va / 1862". Initials "LSK" are nicely carved in buttstock. A search of Confederate records reveals an L.S.King who enlisted 7/31/1862 as a Private in Co G Va 4th Cavalry of Jeb Stuart's division. Mr. Michel, in his notes, offers the following information: "Manufacture of the Sharps pattern carbine by the S. C. Robinson Arms Manufactory from Dec. 1862 to March 1, 1863, when the carbine factory was taken over by the Confederate government. during this short period, close to 2,000 carbines were produced. While these carbines generally follow the outline of the actual Sharps, the difference is immediately noticeable as the lockplate is not drilled for the Lawrence primer feeder and the hammer is more narrow and not imbedded into the outer projection of the receiver. The lockplate is marked 'S.C. Robinson / Arms Manufactory / Richmond Va / 1862'. The top surface of the barrel is stamped 'S. C. Robinson / Arms Manufactory', and behind the rear sight is stamped 'Richmond Va / 1862'. The serial number appears at the tail of the lockplate. This is the highest serial number known for a Robinson-marked carbine". You are bidding on a popular Confederate carbine that generally saw a lot of use, and though this gun was used in battle, it is generally well preserved and complete. CONDITION: Bbl is brown/gray with scattered pitting. Other metal surfaces are also brown/gray with scattered pitting. Rifling in bore is deep and distinct, though pitted. Brass band has been cleaned. Brass buttplate is smooth and exhibits nice patina. Buttstock exhibits some orig varnish with numerous small nicks, dings, and scratches. Forestock has 3" hairline crack which does not affect aesthetics. 4-31342 JS132 (20,000-40,000)"
