    1881-1889 Marlin Ballard’s 1861 Patent .32 Long Round Single Shot Falling Block Breech Loading Under lever Rifle With Octagonal Barrel & Flip Up Peep Sight. Sn 12385:6 - 12385:6

    Not a great deal is known about the man who designed and patented what was to become one of the finest single shot actions made in the United States. His name was Charles H. Ballard, born in 1822 in the town of Sterling, Massachusetts. C.H. Ballard's occupation was that of a machinist. On November 5, 1861, he obtained a patent for a firearm that was to make the name "Ballard" a household word to riflemen for many years to come. After receiving the patent. The first Marlin-made Ballards made their debut in 1875. Between the years 1875 and 1891 J.M. Marlin and the later Marlin Firearms Company offered over twenty different models of the Ballard single shot rifle. These are the single shots that established the fine reputation for accuracy and reliability that the Ballard enjoys to this day; at many of the most prestigious rifle matches of the era, the Ballard was the preferred rifle among expert shooters. The Ballard action provided for a camming action of the breech block, a centre hung hammer for fast lock time, and the internal parts were contained in the breech block, protecting them from dirt and fouling. The many different buttstock styles and barrel weights offered meant that the competition shooter could tailor a rifle to his specific needs. The original guns were made by John M. Marlin, New Haven, Connecticut (1879-81) or the Marlin Fire Arms Company, New Haven, Connecticut (1881-89). They shared the same dropping-block action; barrels were generally rifled with six concentric grooves twisting to the right. This is a nice original example of the Marlin Ballard’s 1861 Patent rifle. It has a 26” octagonal barrel and measures 41 ½” overall. All wood and metalwork are in very good condition with even patina throughout. The stock has a ribbed butt with embossed Marlin monogram. It has the correct flip up 'globe' fore sight, and fixed rear sight together with additional correct flip up ‘peep’ sight. The left side of the action is marked ‘Marlin Firearms Company New Haven CT USA, Patented February 9 1875 Ballard’s Patent Nov 5 1861’ (illustrated). The barrel also has calibre detail ’32 Long’. The weapon is number '22077'. The rifle, strips, cocks and dry fires. Price includes UK delivery and deactivation certificate. Sn 12385:6
