Christian Siebert was born in Frankfort-on-the-Main in Buckingheim, Germany in 1822.
After immigrating to Ohio, he apprenticed under John Griffiths of Cincinnati in 1838,
worked in Louisville, Cincinnati and finally in Columbus and died in 1886. See Ohio
Gunsmiths, Volume I by John Holeman Jr., pp. 244 to 247 for additional Siebert family
information.

The octagonal barrel stamped on top flat “C SIEBERT - COLUMBUS, O” is smooth and
clean with some brown streaking. German silver blade front and fixed open “V” rear
sight. The lock is a conventional mid-1800s back action design, with a double-set trigger
arrangement. Brass trigger guard and buttplate; pewter forend cap. The mainspring is
tight and sets at half and full positions however it doesn’t fire consistently…needs work;
the drum needs to be tightened. There is a tight grain crack to wrist with early working
period screw repair, small area of fill behind the drum.
