H. Nock Pattern 1796 Yeomanry Carbine

.75 caliber, 28" barrel, no S/N. Good model 1786 British flintlock Yeomanry saddle ring carbine by Henry Nock. The first 3.5 - 4" of the barrel is smoothbore; the remainder of the barrel to the breech is rifled with lands & grooves. The bolted lock with swan-neck cock marked H. Nock. All small parts appear to be original. The barrel octagonal at breach marked London NO. 16. Brass furniture with triggerguard prominently marked CYC for "Yeomanry Company." The walnut full stock marked with British military acceptance on left side. Unique Yeomanry ramrod original to this carbine.


Bore is excellent. Lock is crisp. Barrel has fine pitting throughout its length, as does saddle bar. The walnut full stock is in fine condition throughout with only minor imperfections. A very rare and handsome British military saddle-ring carbine.
