LAIDLEY MUSKET


LAIDLEY MUSKET

In the construction of this gun the same form and motions of loading and firing as in the Springfield rifle have been retained as nearly as possible, consistent with a moderate expenditure in its production. An old smooth-bore musket is taken, reamed out for a length of eleven inches, for the reception of a coil ribbon-spring, on one end of which a closely-fitting piston is placed, having a stem of about five inches attached to its center; a hole is bored through the breech-screw and a cut made on its underside to receive a spring; a circular disk with a flaring hole through its center is secured in the barrel just in front of the end of the breech screw ; a short lever crosses the end of the barrel just in front of this disk, and is held in position by the spring already referred to; the hole in the cone is enlarged and receives a small spindle with a collar at its middle, which prevents it from coming out.

About twelve inches from the breech a horizontal cut is made through the top of the barrel, leaving an opening of 2 inches in length; a cylindrical plug, having a hole through its axle, is inserted in the barrel at this place, and a handle screwed in. An inner barrel, having a bore of .22 inch and a length of 17 inches, its upper end counter-bored, is inserted in the barrel and secured by a screw; the length of the block is such as to close the space between the chambered recess and the end of the inner barrel. A hole is bored through the side of the stock to communicate with the hole through the breech-screw.
