Z1413 Lawrence Primer Tube for M1852, M1859, M1863 Sharps Rifles & Carbines
Description: Here is a very nice primer tube for you Civil War Sharps Rifle or Carbine. This is a small brass tube that holds several percussion caps and a small wooden dowel. This device was used to feed percussion caps into the Lawrence Primer Mechanism. The wooden chuck is missing on this one and there is a tack pressed into the dowel for tension. This would make a great addition to any firearms collection!
