The carbine offered here is one of the 5,000 Gallager carbines that were converted to take the Spencer 56-52 cartridge. The nipple was replaced by a firing pin and an extractor was added. These were originally contracted for in March of 1865 with delivery in May of that same year. The weapon offered here has a Walnut buttstock with case hardened lock plate, frame and patch box. Good case coloring remains on all three. Stock has a strong inspector’s cartouche behind the saddle bar and ring and shows average wear. Bluing remains on the barrel.

Lock is marked “MANUFACTD BY RICHARDSON & OVERMAN PHILADA.” with serial number 21815 behind hammer. Rear edge of lock is marked “GALLAGER’S PATENT JULY 17, 1860.” All markings are crisp. Barrel is marked “J.M.D.” between rear sight and breech. Flip up rear sight with single leaf. Metal surfaces are very clean. Action operates well. Hammer holds at half and full cock. Screw heads are good. Bore is very clean.  [ad] [ph:L]
