Manufacturing details of the Ball Lever Action

by Scott Crawford - July 26, 2021


  • Design is attributed to Albert Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts and manufactured by Lamson & Company of Windsor, Vermont.

  • Available from: 1865


  • Cartridges: .56-50 Spencer Rimfire


  • Notes: They were wholly conventional in appearance as lever-actions of the period went - double-banded, two-piece walnut stocks, iron sights, tubular magazine seated under the barrel assembly and a lever that doubled as the trigger guard. The carbine was chambered in .50 and fired the .56-50 Spencer rimfire cartridge, a self-contained cartridge which was leaps ahead of the old cap-and-ball system. Overall length measured 37.75 inches with a 20 inch barrel assembly.

    The result was a fine lever-action carbine suitable for scouts, sharpshooters, infantrymen and mounted troops - just compact enough to take into close-quarters battle but long enough to reach out to targets at range. The cartridge provided good man-stopping power and range and seven were carried, ready-to-fire, in the tubular magazine.

    A small number of weapons were converted after the Civil War to fire .44 Long Rimfire rounds instead

    Design is attributed to Albert Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts and manufactured by Lamson & Company of Windsor, Vermont.
