    C1860's American Civil War Era Merwin & Bray Firearms Co New York 6 Shot Brass Framed Front Loading .42 Cup-Primer Cartridge Single Action Army Model Revolver With Octagonal Barrel. Sn 13913 - 13913

    An excellent example of the unusual front loading Army Model .42 Cup-Primer Cartridge revolver by Merwin & Bray Firearms Co New York (Merwin & Bray made the .42 Army Model aimed at Military contract sales and a smaller .30 cartridge pocket version for the civilian market). Our Army Model example has a 4 ½” octagonal barrel with top rib which is marked “Merwin & Bray Firearms Co NY”. The circumference of the cylinder is faintly marked “PATENTED July 12 1859 July 21 1863”. It has an undamaged brass frame stamped “7592”. The front sight is a half round blade. It has a grooved frame rear sight. The grips are smooth varnished rosewood which have just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age. The steel barrel, removable cylinder, sheathed trigger and hammer retain their original blue finish. The rifled bore is clean. The action functions correctly. This revolver loads its special cartridges from the front, and extracts them with a captive rod with bolt action mounted on the frame’s right side. The cartridges used in this revolver had a priming compound in the cup shaped base of the cartridge. This revolver was manufactured C1860's by Merwin & Bray. It was designed as a front loading cartridge revolver in an effort to circumvent the Rollin White patent held by Smith & Wesson which allowed for chambers bored completely through the cylinder and loaded from the rear. Price for this unusual American front loading pistol includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 13913
