.50-45, 23.25" round barrel, S/N 2004. Blued and case hardened finish, walnut stock and forend secured by single barrel band. Tang marked in two lines: REMINGTONS ILION N.Y. U.S.A. / PAT. MAY 3D. NOV. 15TH. 1864, APRIL 17TH. 1866. Right side of receiver inspected with a P / F.C.W. over an anchor. Two weak FCW cartouches are present in the wood: a weak one on the obverse of the forend and a barely visible one on the obverse wrist. Barrel band with "U" mark and sling swivel, lower swivel in toe of stock. Correct L-shaped leaf rear sight, fixed blade front sight. A very scarce US Navy carbine in original configuration, with only 5,095 being produced and 5,000 being accepted by the US Navy. At least half of these guns were later modified to other calibers and some were altered to rifles. As such, an original .50-45 carbine with Naval inspection marks is a scarce item.
Good. Retains no original finish with a mostly smooth, lightly oxidized brown patina with some scattered surface roughness and pinpricking. Mechanically functional, good bore with scattered pitting. Wood good with bumps and dings, lightly sanded leaving one cartouche weak and the other only a shadow. Still a solid example of a scarce gun.
