This rifle is unusual in that is is chambered for a rimfire metallic cartridge, probably of the type patented by Smith & Wesson on August 8, 1854. There is a hook type extractor in the top of the breech bolt and double firing pins, one on each side of the bolt face. The fact that the rifle is engraved and well finished would seem to indicate that it was made as a promotional piece.
Smith & Wesson repeating rifle, probably made in 1854. Chambered for a metallic cartridge. Blade front and folding leaf rear sights. The barrel has the magazine soldered to its underside, with reinforcing rib on both sides. Barrel is browned, receiver bright. Buttplate and inlay on left side of fancy grained walnut buttstock are of German silver, and, like the receiver and lever, are decorated with scroll engraving. The forward end of the finger lever represents a serpent head. Brass carrier is missing. Lower tang carries sliding latch or lock for finger lever. No half cock notch on the hammer.
