RARE, Late 1800s American, Henry Quackenbush / Pope Brothers USA Nickel Plated Steel & Brass .22 Calibre Single Shot Bolt Action Bicycle Air Pistol / Rifle. Sn 14956 - 14956
Not much is known about these air pistols. It appears that the design of this early air pistol was first patented by the American Henry Quackenbush in 1874 and manufactured by Quackenbush under licence for the American Company Pope Bros who were involved in the cycle making industry. Early examples did not have the bolt action and rod cocking feature but were cocked and loaded by moving the barrel forward cocking the weapon and opening the breech (see pages 138 & 139 of The Collectors Guide To Air Pistols by Hiller). These pistols were known as ‘Bicycle Pistols’. The grip and receiver are cast iron and the barrel brass. The pistol retains much of its original factory nickel plating. It is cocked by compressing a steel rod in front of the cylinder which cocks the weapon. A pellet is loaded into the barrel by means of a bolt at the breech. The pistol has a small steel trigger, fixed fore and rear sights & the back of the grip is holed for wire shoulder stock which was sold as an accessory (our example is without wire shoulder stock). There are no external numbers or manufacturer marks on this example. The pistol cocks, loads and fires as it should. The price for this rare piece of American airgun history includes UK delivery.
