The rifles, single shot guns and revolvers of this make are carefully tested for the use of smokeless and nitro powders and with strength combine many desirable features. The system of detaching the barrels is very simple and effective, Figure 1. By simply loosening the thumb screw, the barrel may be taken out of the frame for cleaning or packing away. To eject the shells, it is only necessary to start the lever by pressing on it with the thumb, then let it snap down, Figure 2. In this way the ejector will throw the empty shells clear past the breech and leave the chamber ready to be reloaded.
