Item #008: 1st Arkansas Starr Carbine
1st Model Starr Carbine that was issued to the 1st Arkansas Cavalry who were loyal to the Union. Originally case hardened, this one has seen plenty of use; as evident by the saddle wear. It is all complete. As a bonus, there is no infamous "Starr carbine crack" on the toe close to the butt plate.
The serial number is 11361. Another Starr from Company D sold at RIA with a serial number of 11376 and a third sold at Cowans with a serial number of 11406.
These were rated better than the Sharps and approximately 20,000 we're manufactured in Yonkers, NYC.
