ALL MATCHING NUMBERS INCLUDING STRIKER BOLT & CLEANING ROD, 1867 Belgian Military, Albini-Braendlin Front Hinge Breech 11mm Obsolete Calibre Military Service Rifle. Sn 15866 - 15866
The Albini rifle (or Albini-Braendlin rifle) was a single-shot 11mm rifle adopted by Belgium in 1867. The action on the Albini rifle was designed by an Italian officer Augusto Albini and was perfected by an English gunsmith, Francis Braendlin. The rifle has a front-hinged, forward lifting action that has a mechanism which works together with the hammer-striker assembly to simultaneously lock and fire the rifle. When fired, the striker bolt moves into the back of the breech block striking the firing pin and locking the block in place at ignition. Both striker and firing pin move in the same line as the rifle bore. Pulling the hammer back withdraws the striker from the breech block allowing it to be lifted on its pivot pin by means of a small fixed knob on the right side of the block. This is an excellent example of the Albini-Braendlin 11mm calibre service rifle. It has 33 ½” barrel which is clean with crisp rifling and measures 53 ½” overall. It has all original wood work which has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and steel butt plate. It also has a steel trigger guard with extended tang, adjustable graduated ladder rear sight, block and blade foresight, bayonet block, sling swivels and original steel cleaning rod. It has the correct hinged breech and heavy military hammer. The barrel is stamped with inspection marks and '1867'. The central barrel band, butt plate, barrel, striker bolt and cleaning rod have matching numbers ‘709’. The loading and firing actions work perfectly. Price includes UK delivery.

This is an excellent original example of the British 1853 Pattern rifled musket manufactured under contract to British War Department by Robbins and Lawrence, Windsor, Vermont, USA in 1856. During the Crimean War (1854-1856) there was a shortfall of Enfield rifle muskets. Insufficient numbers were being produced in the United Kingdom and, despite a contract for their manufacture being placed in Belgium, further assistance from both the United States and France was sought. An American contact was swiftly set up in February 1855 for 25,000 US rifle muskets, altered to the Enfield bore, to be made by Robbins and Lawrence of Windsor, Vermont. The American produced Enfields were stamped 'WINDSOR' on the lock. Although the contract was for 25,000 weapons, due to financial difficulties only 16,000 were produced in America for the British Army and marked ‘Windsor’. This is a very rare, original example of the Crimean War American contract 1853 Pattern 2-band Percussion Rifled Musket. The side plate is correctly stamped ‘Windsor’ and has the Queens crown (Victoria) together with ‘1856’ date. It has an excellent all original walnut stock, brass butt plate, brass trigger guard with extended tang, steel fore end block and original steel ram rod. It is without bayonet lug.

The 1866 Yellow Boy lever-action rifle was a marked improvement over the Henry rifle.

Large, C1800 Indian Match Lock 16 Bore Musket / Rampart Gun With Octagonal Barrel & Ornate Hand Painted Wood Furniture With Steel Ram Rod . Sn 15787 - 15787
The matchlock was the first mechanism, or "lock" invented to facilitate the firing of a hand-held firearm.

This is a C1800 Indian matchlock musket. It has a 122cm long 16 bore octagonal barrel with flared muzzle and measures 171cms overall length. The barrel near the breech is numbered ‘97’. The smooth bore has residue and staining. It has a wood stock which has ornate red and green foliate scrolling decoration on a cream background & hand tooled brass barrel bands. It has a bead fore sight, grooved block rear sight and steel ram rod. It has a metal bar press trigger on the underside of the stock which correctly moves the 'match holder' arm to the metal powder pan (the match holder is absent). The metal has even patina to be expected of a native Indian weapon of its age. The wood work is colourful, clean and undamaged. The price includes UK delivery.

RARE, MINT BORE, American Civil War Era Gallager’s 1860 Patent .52 Obsolete Calibre Single Shot Breech Loading Cavalry Carbine By Richardson and Overman Philadelphia With Patch Box, Saddle Bar & Ring. Sn 15788 - 15788
The Gallager carbine is an American black powder breech loading rifle produced during the American Civil War for use by Union Cavalry. The weapon was designed by Mahlon J. Gallager, who licensed the design to Richardson and Overman of Philadelphia for production. The Gallager was breech loaded to the rear with brass cases, which contained the projectile and the propellant. Covered by a disc made of greased felt, the projectile was inserted in the barrel after it was tilted up by a lever, followed by the case, and (like the concurrent muzzleloaders, such as the Springfield) were ignited by percussion cap, which was placed on the bolt face. The brass cases had a paper patch in the base, to prevent powder seepage and still allow the cap to fire the round. This is an excellent example. The metal work has even patina and its original wood stock has just the bumps and bruises to be expected. The 22” barrel’s bore is near mint, clean with crisp rifling and it measures 39 ¼” overall. It is fitted with a fixed ‘v’ notch plate rear sight and fixed fore sight together with steel saddle bar & ring. It is also fitted with steel butt plate and patch box with hinged lid. The action plate is crisply marked with Gallager’s 1860 patent detail and Richardson and Overman Philadelphia manufacturer’s address together with number ‘10637’. The action is also numbered ‘128’. The loading and firing actions work perfectly. The price for this American Civil War era carbine includes UK delivery.
