RARE**American Civil War Era , Peabody’s 1862 Patent (Model 1862 Army) .45 Peabody Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Breech Loading Carbine. Sn 18188 - 18188

The Peabody action was an early form of breechloading firearm action, where the heavy breechblock tilted downwards across a bolt mounted in the rear of the breechblock, operated by a lever under the rifle. The Peabody action most often used an external hammer to fire the cartridge. The Peabody action was developed by Henry O. Peabody from Boston, Massachusetts, and was first patented on July 22, 1862. Peabody carbines and rifles were made by the Providence Tool Company, Providence, Rhode Island & Sharps & Hankins. Our example by Providence Tool Co is in very good condition. The weapon is 40” overall length. By operating the under lever, the breech plates falls to allow loading of a cartridge. The weapon has a 21” long, blued barrel. The barrel’s bore has staining and residue consistent with age & use & crisp rifling. The metal work has even patina. It has a blade foresight and ‘v’ notch block rear sight. The left side of the frame is crisply stamped with manufacturer and patent detail (illustrated in image 2). There is no visible serial number on the carbine. The all original wood work is undamaged with just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age. The butt plate is steel and it has single sling swivels. The loading and firing actions work crisply. The price for this rare carbine includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre carbine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display.
