    Lawrence primer mechanism

    I'm restoring a NM.1863 Sharps rifle and have on order what I believe is all the bits to reinstall the missing pellet primer mecanism. A diagram of the Lawrence pellet primer mechanism would help: it appears a tad complex. Thanks.

    Here is a diagram of the pellet primer mechanism of a 1859 New Model Sharps. I am not sure if they are exactly the same or not. But it should give a good idea of how it installs. Click on the thumb nail for a better view.
