  1. This is my new toy! I have obscured the serial number for safety's sake. This particular gun is the 5th model, "model of 1864." I have an ancestor who was assigned to A Troop, 2nd Illinois Cavalry Regiment, which was issued this carbine. I know he did not carry this particular gun because my ancestor was wounded at Shiloh in 1862 and subsequently discharged; this gun was manufactured in early to mid 1864. But it's pretty awesome to have the same type of gun he carried, anyway. The cartridge it fires does not have a primer incorporated; it has a hole in the case head that is slightly smaller than a granule of ffg powder. So the shooter has to put a musket cap on the nipple like its front stuffing cousins. Thanks to the help of some pards on this here web site, I have located some modern-made brass to make her sing again (pending a gunsmith's inspection).
