This a great replica of the Military Sharps Carbine from USA in 1859 made from wood and metal. The Sharps carbine, created from the design of Christian Sharps in 1848, was a bolt-draw carbine that in addition to being able to use the standard fulminating capsule, had a rather unusual mechanism of priming. It contained a column of fulminating capsules and put one on the chimney each time the trigger was tightened and the hammer fell, making it easier to fire. The carbine version of the Sharps rifles was very popular in both the Union and Confederation cavalry, and unlike the rifle, about 90,000 of the Model 1859 were made.
