An Original Tube of Civil War Maynard Tape Primers - SOLD

An Original Tube of Civil War Maynard Tape Primers

This original tube of Maynard tape primers comes with three tapes still in their original wrapping along with two that have been unwrapped.

The tin retains much of the original japanning finish on the outside. In generally fine condition. A must have for anyone with a Maynard tape primed musket.

These were issued early in the Civil War along with muskets using this priming device. They were found to be unreliable due to the primer door being "blown" open by the primer blast and the tape falling out.

This method was replaced with the standard primer system previously used on model 1842 muskets.

2 5/8" long
