POINTY-NOSE .50 CALIBER MAYNARD BULLET

$25.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-2522

Solid base, pointy nose, and one groove. Excellent white patina. Much less common that the later flat-nose type bullet.

Dr. Edward Maynard held patent #22,565 dated January 11, 1859.  By this patent, cartridge cases for the Maynard carbine were made of drawn brass to form a tube with a closed end.  A brass disk was soldered to the base of the tube.  The large diameter of the base disk was to aid in extracting the case after firing.  The cartridge was separate primed — a small hole in the base allowed the flame from a percussion cap through to ignite the powder charge.  [jet] [ph:jet]
