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.
