#4636 Triplett & Scott (Meriden Arms) Civil War Carbine, 22”x50RF

Description

#4636 Triplett & Scott (Meriden Arms) Civil War Carbine, 22”x50RF with rather dirty bore that should clean to about a “7” on a scale of 10 after a little soaking in bore solvent and a half-hour of scrubbing. VG action. About 5000 of this variation sold mainly to the State of Kentucky in 1864 for their Home Guard during the Civil War. What is particular interesting to this HIGHLY unusual action is that it does actually work!! Also, the Triplett & Scott was one of the four Northern cartridge repeaters purchased during that War (the Henry, Ball& Lamson, Spencer, and Triplett & Scott). All but the Henry used the 50RF cartridge and were “seven shooters”. It also used a very odd sling arrangement with both swivels at the rear of the butt and a short sling that just looped around the rear and the weapon then suspended under the users armpit! This specimen has excellent metal with a soft plum brown on the barrel and the receiver, The forearm is about excellent but as with 95% of ALL Triplett & Scotts, this one does NOT suffer from splintering and cracks where the buttstock covers the magazine throat area. The wood was just too thin at that point and when the wood dried and aged, the stock would crack at that open throat area. A real “Rube Goldberg” mechanical device and really must be seen to be appreciated for their uniqueness. VG-VG+ condition. $1950
