Description for Item # 393153935 
 

Up for sale is a Grant & Co. Parlor rifle with a patent date of Nov, 9 1869. This is referred to as the "Zimmerstutzen" model. It is a spring loaded percussion rifle that shoots .22 caliber ball ammo. There were only 850 of these made. This rare Zimmerstutzen Parlor Rifle has a very different action. To operate you load a .22 caliber ball into the 3 ½” barrel extension. Pull the ring under the barrel straight back about 1 ½ “ where it locks back and cocks the rifle. Cap the now exposed nipple. Aim and pull the trigger to fire. This rifle is good for up to about 10 yards. These along with air rifles, were used at shooting parlors that sprang up after the Civil War. This Zimerstutzen is very rare. It was the first model manufactured in the USA in 1869.It is based on Jacob Widmer’s patent of 1869. It is # 610 of only 850 made. This is an antique firearm, therefore it is not required to be sent to an FFL. Make sure that you are allowed to own this type of firearm in your local jurisdiction as I will not ship to areas where this is illegal to own. I only accept USPS Money orders. The item will ship within 5 business after payment has been received. Shipping will be $25.00 (Includes Insurance) and item will be sent via USPS and insured for the sale amount. Payment is due within 5 business days. If payment is not received on time, the sale will be voided and item will be re-listed unless previous arrangements have been made. This gun is being sold "As IS". As with all used guns, please have them checked out by a competent gunsmith before firing.
