Here's a great Maynard for a shooter or collector. This carbine is in good shape. The action is nice and tight with a solid half and full cock. The barrel cams positively and locks up nicely against the receiver. The flash hole is nice and tight; although slightly oblong. The markings on the receiver are legible.
The barrel is full length and both front and rear sights are original; although the short leaf in the rear sight is broken. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and no rust or pitting. It should make for a great shooter! The butt stock is in good shape with some minor dings and dents, and no cracks or chips.
This Maynard is a great representative sample of a good Civil War carbine-a great choice for any collection.
