TAB Episode 37: Prince’s Breechloading Rifle

In 1855 Frederic Prince patented an interesting breechloading action which used a forward sliding barrel that allowed it to be loaded from the breech.

In this episode Matt takes a look at a beautiful example of Prince’s rifle. The British Army tested the rifle in 1855 and performed well and was recommended for further trials.
