  1. Hi Gents,

    It's taken a while but I now have some detailed pictures in order to identify this Carbine (and decide if it's an original).

    For a really detailed look and a great zoom facility the pictures and markings can be viewed here


    Regards and thanks







  2. If you check your orignal thread, I have identified it already as a Pattern 1844 Yeomanry carbine. I might be able to find it a good home depending on price naturally ;-)
  3. Thanks for the reply. So it is genuine ?

    As regards a price, it was handed down by father to son and will in all probability stay in the family.

    Many thanks
  4. Absolutely genuine, no doubt there. Keep the metalwork lightly oiled and it will last for ever!
  5. Er not trying to hijack the thread but
    "Bite, Pour, Spit, Tap, Cock, Present, Aim, FIRE!"

    We have all seen this on Sharpe,
    Possible in a smoothbore but would it work in a Rifle ?
  6. The son has now decided to sell on the Carbine and is trying to get it valued, any ideas gents ?
