Between 1842 and 1843, 1,001 of these guns were produced at Harpers Ferry Armory. .52 caliber smoothbore. Brass mounted. Correct breechblock marking of "H.FERRY/ US/ 1842". Correct trumpet headed iron ramrod. "Fishtail" opening lever as found on the model 1841 Hall rifles and type II 1840 Hall carbines. All of these guns were used by the 1st US Dragoons for service on the Western campaigns leading up to the Civil War. Also of note is that these are the last carbines produced at Harpers Ferry Armory. Given the extremely limited production and subsequent hard usage by the 1st Dragoons, these guns rarely if ever come up for sale and are missing from many advanced US military arms collections. CONDITION: All iron surfaces retain a pleasing even patina with light to moderate pitting. All markings are clear and legible. Brass has a nice mellow color to it. Stock has a great untouched look with minor handling marks and what appears to be an inspectors mark just after the triggerguard tang. Bore has light pitting. Action is in good working order, everything operating as it should.
