His objects, including costly antiques and household decorative items, were often placed on ornamental, gleaming surfaces.

Mass. Arms Co. Second Model Maynard Percussion Carbine

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 29, 2016

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Mass. Arms Co. Second Model Maynard Percussion Carbine This carbine is one of an estimated 20,202 "Model 1863" carbines manufactured between 1863 and 1865. Some were used by Union mounted units during the final battles of the war including by the 9th and 11th Indiana Cavalry and the 11th Tennessee Cavalry. The brass cases used in these carbines combined with the lever opening action made them particularly easy to load. This model was adopted after the Massachusetts Arms Company factory in Chicopee Falls was rebuilt following a fire in 1861. The company also manufactured a number of other weapons, including Adams revolvers, Smith carbines, and Warner Carbines. The company was originally founded by Joshua Stevens along with Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson who went on to form the Stevens Arms Company and Smith & Wesson. Among the first arms they produced were the early Sharps breech loaders. This example has the standard markings and features including crisp cartouches on the left side of the stock. Manufacturer: Massachusetts Arms Co Model: Maynard-2nd Carbine BBL: 20 inch part octagon Stock: walnut Gauge: 50 percussion Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: Serial Number: 17112 Class: Antique Condition: Fine as partially refinished (barrel). Most of the blue finish remains on the balance of the barrel, and the action retains 80% case colors. There is some minor edge wear and a few scattered marks. The stock is also very good and has some minor handling and storage marks. The markings are crisp throughout, and the action functions fine.

Scarce Mass. Arms Co. Wesson & Leavitt Percussion Belt Revolver

by Rock Island Auction Company

December 4, 2015

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Scarce Mass. Arms Co. Wesson & Leavitt Percussion Belt Revolver These small pocket revolvers followed upon the earlier, and very scarce, Edwin Wesson and Warner & Wesson revolvers based on the Daniel Leavitt's patent and Edwin Wesson's improvements. Leavitt's patent was submitted just one year after Sam Colt's. Edwin Wesson died in 1849 just a decade after improving the design and would have almost certainly contributed significantly to American arms development as his brothers did had he lived longer. Only an estimate 1,000 of these pocket or belt revolvers were manufactured around 1850-51 by the Massachusetts Arms Company in Chicopee Falls before the company was forced out of business by Colt's aggressive litigation. It has scroll engraving on the action and hammer, etched floral and stand of arms patterns on the six shot cylinders, a blade front sight, small notch rear sight, and smooth walnut grips. The top strap has the two-line manufacturer address, and the action has the one-line patent marking on the right. Manufacturer: Massachusetts Arms Co Model: Wesson & Leavitt Belt Revolver BBL: 3 5/8 inch round Stock: Gauge: 31 percussion Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: walnut Serial Number: 444 Class: Antique Condition: Very good. 40% plus of the original blue finish remains on the barrel, back strap, and trigger guard. There are traces of original case colors in the protected areas and otherwise gray and brown patina on the balance with some light pitting and oxidation. The markings are clear. The lightly sanded, reoiled grip is good with minor dings and marks. The action is fine.

Scarce Engraved Mass. Arms Co. Maynard Primed Belt Revolver with Hand Revolved Cylinder

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 29, 2016

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Scarce Engraved Mass. Arms Co. Maynard Primed Belt Revolver with Hand Revolved Cylinder When the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Massachusetts granted Samuel Colt an injunction against Mass. Arms Co. in 1851 that prevented them from making their Wesson & Leavitt revolvers, they started making the hand turned revolvers though they were never very popular and production was rather limited. This example was manufactured in the early to mid-1850s and has a small button on the bottom of the action just ahead of the trigger that releases the cylinder so that it can be manually rotated. At least 200 of these pistols were shipped to abolitionist John Brown in Kansas in 1857. Other mechanisms were also tried. One method, for example, used a trigger pull to rotate the cylinder and then the hammer was manually cocked. To make these more primitive firearms more palatable to the public, Mass Arms Co. equipped it with Maynard's tape priming system. This example has attractive scrollwork engraving on the hammer, lock, and frame; a shield with "MAYNARD'S PATENT/[patriotic eagle and shield motif]/SEP. 22. 1845" on the primer door; etched floral designs on the cylinder; "MASS. ARMS CO./CHICOPEE FALLS" on the top strap; "257" on the barrel lug; "626" on the recoil shield and back strap; German silver blade front sight; notch rear sight; and smooth grip. Manufacturer: Massachusetts Arms Co Model: Belt BBL: 6 inch round Stock: Gauge: 31 percussion Finish: blue/casehardened/silver Grips: walnut Serial Number: 626 Class: Antique Condition: Fine. 75% of the original, bright high polish blue finish remains on the barrel and barrel catch. The grip straps retain most of the original silver plating and have a dark, aged patina. The remaining components have traces of original finish, including some bright patches of case color, and primarily display gray-brown patina. There are some small patches of mild pitting and oxidation. The grip is very fine and has only mild handling marks. It is mechanically fine, and the markings and engraving patterns are crisp.
