Description

Seller's Description:
LSB#: 120417EM22

Make: H.M. Quackenbush

Model: 1886 Boys Rifle

Serial Number: NSN

Year of Manufacture: 1886-1920

Caliber: .22

Action Type: Single Shot Side Fling Breech

Markings: The left side of the frame is marked “H.M. Quackenbush, Herkimer, N.Y.U.S.A. / Pat In U.S. & Eng.Sep.23 86 & Belg. Mar. 15.86.”.

Barrel Length: 17 7/8”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a post front sight and a rear sight in a dovetail slot.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are wood. The wood has become dry and exhibits cracking along grain lines, as well as a four inch crack on the left side of the buttstock in front of the buttplate. There are several dings and compression marks and general loss of finish. The LOP measures approx. 15 ¾” from the trigger to the back of the buttplate. The stocks rate in about Fair overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue/ Plated Receiver

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is rusted but shows rifling.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 30% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows a brown patina with much surface erosion of the barrel near the breech. The receiver shows flaking and finish loss throughout. The markings are clear on the left side of the frame. Overall, this gun rates in about Poor condition.

Mechanics: The action does not function. The side folding breech swings freely. The bolt rod does cock and the trigger does fire, however everything is loose.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a rare rifle and finding one is difficult regardless of condition. Quackenbush designed this rifle as a safety rifle with a swinging breech making it immediately safe as a result of pushing the breech over. Quackenbush ceased production of rifles in WWII when his assembly lines were given over to the war effort to make cores for .50 Cal. ammunition. Quakenbush made kitchen utensils well into the 20th century. Here is a collector find!.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California and is C&R eligible.
