New to the stable, an unmodified (still smoothbore) 1843 Hall-North side lever carbine. 1848 dated. Wasn't part of the infamous 'Fremont Affair' that got about half of these carbines as I understand it. I think it might have one or two replacement screws and I can't tell if the ramrod is a repro or just a very polished original (why someone would do that I don't know), but the tip is threaded. I don't know if The Rifle Shoppe threaded their ramrods or not.

Still has a pretty good and tight seal between the breech block and barrel and the wood is good except for maybe a sanding. No cracks or blowouts that seem to be common on these.

What's got me stumped is the the muzzle. The barrel comes in at exactly 21" like it should but it sure looks like the end of the muzzle has been shaved or cut down a smidgen. Maybe just to repair a damaged end but the length says otherwise. 🤷‍♂️

Last photo is my Hall family. 😊
