American Ordnance Mountain Gun -M1875 -  1.65" - 42MM

American Ordnance Mountain Gun -M1875 - 1.65" - 42MM

Lot # 1   

RARE!!!About impossible to find….Serial number 125. The M1875 Hotchkiss mountain gun was used by the United States Army from 1875 to about 1905. A Hotchkiss design from t...morehe French Arms Firm, Hotchkiss & Company founded by Benjamin B. Hotchkiss, (1826–1885), It served with cavalry units during the late American Indian Wars, including the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre, and was also used in the Philippine–American War (Philippines Insurrection) of 1899–1902 in the Philippine Islands. The U.S. Government purchased 57 Model 1875 Hotchkiss Mountain Guns over a 20 year period, now less than 50 are now known to exist worldwide. These guns are primarily in Museums. It is rare opportunity that this Mountain Gun is available at Auction!A 1878 Ordnance Report from Brigadier-General Steven Vincent Benet, narrates part of the history of this gun, stating, "Early in 1876, Colonel Miles, Fifth Infantry, suggested that a light field-gun weighing less than 500 pounds be provided for service on the plains, to replace the obsolete mountain howitzer. The subject was submitted to the Ordnance Board for consideration, with the remark 'that a rifled gun, probably a breech-loader, that can travel with cavalry, and has an effective shell range beyond that of rifled small arms, not less than 1,500 yards, would probably meet the requirements of the service'. While under consideration, Mr. B.B. Hotchkiss presented for examination and trial a light breech-loading rifle that gave promise of efficient service on the frontier, and fulfill the conditions of mobility, range, and accuracy. One was procured, and issued to the Department of Dakota in 1877, and was used in the field that summer. It weighs 116lbs, and its caliber is 1.65 inches. It uses a charge of 6 ounces of powder, and a percussion shell weighing 2 pounds. While many defects in its mechanism, and in the carriage and ammunition, have been pointed out after the experience of a campaign, showing that modifications are desirable to add to its effectiveness, it did excellent work. I am informed that Colonel Miles expressed himself satisfied that it had rendered efficient service, and was a valuable weapon. With all its defects, others have been called for, and the five now in possession of the department will be issued to the troops." Consignor states that this cannon was puchased 70 yrs ago by his father and himself, then a 10yr old boy, from a gentleman back east in the State of Virginia.Specs: Manufactured By/American Ordinance Company and Shops/Bridgeport-Conn./Offices/Washington D.C./U.S.A. in center.
