Quackenbush Model No. 2 New Model Air Gun in Original Box. Overall length is 37”. The round .21 caliber barrel has an excellent smooth bore. The metal has approximately 90% of its original nickel. The stock is good with a crack through the attaching screw on the right side. The box is very good with an intact, readable instruction label on the tip. The top ends are present but need repair. The bottom is sound with the interior portion (less end) for the barrel. An extra spring is present but the piston appears to be missing. The receiver and barrel serial number, 2052, are matching. There is a cleaning rod in the box. In Flayderman book (9th Ed, P.777) it states the company's advertisement in 1889 said the No. 2 was, “...adopted on practice ships of the U.S. Navy.” While the No. 2 New Model Air Gun’s are occasionally encountered, this is the first Quackenbush box we have seen.
