The action in this rifle is similar to the regular Model 1866, except for the usual swinging hammer, which has been replaced by a plunger in the housing at the rear of the receiver. When the lever has been operated to place a cartridge in the chamber, a spring catch at the rear of the housing containing the plunger can be released, causing the plunger to move to the rear, out of the housing. As the plunger is pushed back into the housing, the action is cocked. When the trigger is pulled, a spring inside the plunger is released, striking a blow against the back of the double rim fire firing pins. This blow jars the firing pins forward, firing the cartridge.
