Original Civil War Gallager .50 cal Cavalry Carbine in battle hardened condition. The stock shows a good amount of wear from service with usual bumps and bruises. Has a soldiers initials carved in left side of stock. (May be able to research and find the soldier with 4 letters). The Patent stamp, Maker Mark and Serial Numbers are faint but still legible. The mechanics work great with tight action. Iron patchbox displays strong and has a spare firing nipple and piece of a ramrod. The barrel is dirty but has nice rifling remaining. Possible repair on the hammer and has replaced aged hammer screw. Please see all photos. A nice gun that displays strong for the money.
