    WTB: Breechloading Carbine

    Howdy everyone!

    Starting skirmishing at the start of this season, and it's safe to say I'm hooked! Looking to buy a breechloading carbine. I'm partial to the smith since I have a small amount of experience on it, but am open to any carbine that is a known shooter, bonus points if it's already skirmish ready. Looking to spend 1000-1500$. More bonus points if in Mid Atlantic near Springtown.

    EDIT: Found an original Smith to buy, thanks everyone!

    Sharps carbine

    I have an IAB ?63 sharps carbine for sale. To my knowledge it has only been used in reenactments. I am asking $900.00 + shipping. My email is jeh091566@aol.com. I can send pics tomorrow if you are interested.

    I?ve heard some pretty mixed reviews about the IAB sharps. Both on the forums here and elsewhere. As well as the sharps being somewhat finicky as a whole, especially for a new shooter, and especially repro?s at that. I?ll pass on this though, thanks for offering it though!
