This Civil War Relics Federal Carbine Socket had a write up and civil war story with it:
"Cavalry carbine socket in extra fine condition. Maker marked by Metzger, the same outfit that made Confederate buttons for Georgia. To keep the carbine from beating against the horse and rider as he rode, the carbine was inserted barrel first into these sockets, which were strapped to the saddle. If the carbine was in the socket and also snapped to the trooper's carbine sling over his shoulder the cavalryman could be shot or fall from the saddle and be dragged by the socketed carbine as the horse ran. Sergeant A.W. Lane of Co. G, 72nd Indiana Mounted Infantry, a trooper in Smith’s cavalry expedition at Okolona, Mississippi, wrote of the 72nd making a fighting withdrawal against heavy odds while other regiments were stomped by Forrest. Lane recalled the chaos: “the rebels pressing us on every step with pistol and saber…when you could see, as I did, men shot from the saddle ... dragged to death by maddened horses…”
