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.
