 Defarbed Perdersoli Confederate Sharps Carbine:
Samuel C Robinson was the owner-operator of the Belvidere Planing Mills In Richmond Virginia.  In early 1862 Robinson received a State of Virginia contract for breech loading carbines. The Robinson Carbine is similar to the Sharps New Model 1859, but lacks the patch-box, Sharps-Lawrence priming mechanism and the adjustable leaf rear sight.  This rare Confederate arm was issued to Jeb Stuart's Army of Northern Virginia Cavalry.

 Dixie Gun Works sell this reproduction new for $1395.00 with that you get all the Italian marks. This one has been completely defarbed by removing all the Italian remarks and adding the historical markings and re-barrel in .52 Caliber as the original and you can still buy it for $100.00 less than the Dixie price.
