Z6963 1” Gatling Gun Cartridge (Bar Anvil-Primed)
Description: Nice 1” Gatling Gun cartridge with an iron bar anvil primer. This example is a dud and has a firing pin mark in the center of the copper case. The iron bar anvil is held in place with two crimps just above the head. These were manufactured at the Frankford Arsenal around 1866 and were superseded by the Benet-primed cartridges in 1868. You can hear a little powder on the inside of this one. It weighs 3,716-grains which is a little light for a full powder load. Nice clean case with fingerprints that is free of dents!
Measures: OAL 3.830” CL 2.172” RD 1.146” HD 1.024” CM .985” BDaCM 1.035”
