The Smith Carbine was patented in 1857 and served officially in no less than 10 Union cavalry units, and was even prized by Confederates as a more maneuverable, but still accurate, rifle though a lack of cartridge cases caused many to load them in an unsafe manner.

More than 30,000 of these rifles were built, and it is considered one of the most popular rifles of the Civil War, and one of the most accurate of the cartridge carbines.

The Smith was unique for being a break open rifle using an early predecessor to the modern cartridge. The cartridges were rubber and had a tendency to become melded with the barrel.

Our Traditions Smith Carbine follows the pattern of the first model issued to cavalry troops, and often referred to as the "artillery model," though not a single Smith rifle was issued to any artillery units. The rifle comes with four reusable brass cartridges, and new polymer rubber ones can be found for a more authentic feel without the hassle of 19th century rubber.

The Traditions Smith is referred to as a .50 caliber
but can more accurately be called a .52 caliber rifle as it uses a .510-.515 bullet.*
