Jennings Repeating Rifle

The Jennings was an improvement upon Hunt's design.  It incorporated his ideas and improved upon them with Lewis Jenning's ideas.  The guns were built by Robbins & Lawrence of Windsor, Vermont in the first part of the 1850's.  It is believed about 1,000 guns were produced.

They were made in 3 distinct models. The Third Model is pictured here.  All were made in .54 caliber. 

The Jennings is important in the development of the leveraction rifle, not only because of it's design, but also because it introduced a man named B.Tyler Henry to the concept of leverguns.
