What is my history?

Hello from Germany. I'm an old retired Marine and shoot at the local range. An old German gent who I know asked me to see what I could find out about his old rifle (which he still shoots) He describes it as follows: Saxonian Kingdom, Model 1850, cal. 14,64, Mfg Malherbe in Liege (Luettich). In 1862 it was sold to the US Union Army. It has the following mark: 3/194. If anybody can direct me to a good source of info I'd be appreciative. I'd love to tell him to which unit it was sent and when, and in what battles it probably fought. I also have another five photos of the rifle. Thanks very much and Semper Fi, CWO-3 Bill Black, USMC (Ret).
