Hamilton Model Number 7 Single Shot Boy's Rifle
Mfd Dates 1899 - 1901
Model 7 was the first Hamilton Rifle made. The skeleton frame was made entirely of castings, stampings with coil springs and completely nickel-plated. To load the rifle the barrel pivots to the left at the frame junction, exposing the chamber.
44,700 No. 7's were made from 1899-1901, of which Mr. Ringbauer, Hamilton Rifle Historian, Author and Collector, estimates 99.9 percent have gone to "Rifle Heaven", meaning expert collectors estimate only 45 Number 7's in existence.
This No. 7 is missing the 8" pivot barrel and trigger guard. Estimated 60% of nickel plating remains.
The markings on butt plate are legible and read: Hamilton Rifle Co of Plymouth Mich. Pat. Pend's No 7, 22 Cal.
Will trade this rare Hamilton No 7 for a S&W, Colt Ruger 357 Mag or other first quality Double Action Revolver with 3" barrel with medium frame in excellent condition. No snub nose.
Or will sell for $450. This antique rifle cane be mailed to buyer.
Financial institutions have to toe the line between "security" and people who BARELY remember their own name, much less be able to keep track of secure authentication credentials. Until this changes...
