Z5702 .50-50 Maynard Cartridge, Model 1865, Copper Rivet
Description: Scarce experimental .50-50 Maynard cartridge with the copper balloon rivet for use with the 2nd Model Maynard Carbine. It is thought that the rivet was meant to secure the casing to the head. Originally, the cartridges were just soldered to the base. This example is riveted and soldered. Along with copper riveted example, there is also a brass riveted example. I don’t see any other reason for a rivet other than to secure both pieces together. This example has some light writing on the side of the casing. The bullet can be removed so you can visually see the rivet on the inside. There are two marks on the nose of the projectile which is common due to the way they were packaged. A hard-to-find variant!
Measures: OAL 1.737” CL 1.224” RD .771” HD .546”
