D'oh! On shot number six, my friend experiences a bit of difficulty. My bet is that the ammo he was using was old and that the primer fired, but not the powder. But I am no gunsmith, and a gunsmith is where he will be going to fix this little problem. An interesting find, but none too valuable. One of these in perfect condition goes for around $400-$500 approximately. Always interesting to wonder for a while just what path this fella took to get to Madison, Wisconsin over the last 110 years.
