Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 3512

Question:

Hello, was hoping you could be of some help. We just closed down the family home in New York and brought back several rifles. The first one we are researching has markings that say: Gallager's July,17 1860 Richardson's # 14044 Could you help us in finding the value of this fire arm and how to sell it??? hanks in advance. It is in great shape and I can send a e-photo. Jim Worden

Answer:

The Gallager Carbine, made by Richardson & Overman, Philadelphia was a 50 caliber, percussion, breechloader. It was single shot and the barrel slid forward to load. It had a 22 1/4 inch round barrel and 17,728 were produced. The Gallager saw extensive service during the Civil War. Retail value in good condition $950.00. Suggest you enlist the aid of an active colector to help sell the weapon.
