Here is a rare reproduction of an even rarer Confederate arm. The SC Robinson carbine was built for the Confederate Army in Richmond VA in 1862. It was a copy of the Sharps carbine but had several notable differences from the Sharps including brass furniture instead of steel, a simple "tombstone" style sight instead of an adjustable ladder sight and a simple lock plate without a pellet feeding system. Less than 5,000 SC Robinson Carbines were produced.
This carbine is an excellent copy of the SC Robinson right down to the brass furniture and simple "tombstone"-style rear sight; just like the originals. These reproduction SC Robinsons were produced by Pedersoli, who is no longer offering them.
This particular SC Robinson is in fantastic condition. It has been defarbed and as a result, all the modern Italian markings were neatly removed by the gun's previous owner. The bluing is in good condition with some typical wear from mounted use. The color case hardening has faded to a mottled brown; giving the carbine the look of a well cared-for original.
The stocks are both in great condition with the left side of the buttstock showing some wear from a cavalry sling hook.
The lock functions perfectly on both full and half cock with a great crisp action. The breech block seals tightly against the breech and the action is as smooth as silk. The bore is very good with no major pitting and nice sharp rifling.
