David Halbach Even Off watercolor western painting Native American Indians trapper mountain man

 

“C.M. Spencer, from South Manchester, Connecticut, patented his 1860 rifle designed with a seven cartridge magazine tube loaded from the butt plate. Its breech was operated by a lever that ejected the spent cartridges.

About the same time B. Tyler Henry patented a rifle in which the magazine, a tube mounted under the barrel, held fifteen shots with the breech ejecting the spent cartridges.

It was noted the Indian could load, gain ground and release 6 to 10 arrows in the time it took a person to load a flint-lock or cap and get one shot off… hence these new rapid fire rifles made it more than even.”   David Halbach
