7 Single Shot Air Rifle made in Herkimer, NY. This gun was made from 1912 to 1936 with no variations or registry numbers to identify the year. The gun is solid and in very nice condition. It has a nice straight barrel and the wood stock and forearm are near excellent.7 Single Shot Air Rifle appears to be complete. The cocking mechanism opens to reveal the breech loading mechanism. The adjustable trigger works, and the gun fires a puff of air. I believe that this gun fires a standard size of a BB but the shot needs to be lead, so I have not loaded it.
The gun does cock and make a bang when the trigger is fired. 7 has a nice patina, and it is approximately 38 in length. Please look at the pictures for the best description. Quackenbush is known for more than just his air rifles.
Quackenbush is credited for inventing the metal hand nut cracker. If you look at the bridge of older nut crackers, you can see his initials (HMQ). Own a piece of history. This would be a nice gun in any collection.
