    The Hamilton no 15

    A friend of mine just passed along to me a boys Hamilton no15 rifle.22 short, single shot. Appears to be original and functional. From what I can determine it's a early version, 2 1900 patent dates, small takedown knob.IMG_20190626_151212~2.jpgIMG_20190626_151146~2.jpgIMG_20190626_151134~2.jpg

    Neat, never seen that model, but have a fairly common model 27. The history on them is interesting. As I remember at first they were giveaways with windmills made and sold by them. The barrel on mine is sheet metal with a liner.

    I haven't had a Hamilton for years and I'm not schooled on them. A fellow I know has been collecting Hamilton and Quackenbush for years. I don't think I ever have shot one. Neat little guns of the period.

    Very interesting but if you shoot it , you might want to consider using C.B. caps or maybe low velocity shorts.
