Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Originally patented in 1858, these became very popular on the River Boats of the great Mississippi river in the 1870's. They were often used by gamblers and others who would require protection on the often dark decks. Fully nickel plated of which most remains, having just a 3" barrel and 4 3/4” overall, this was ideal for a waistcoat pocket. The barrel top strap is marked with the Remington Address:

REMINGTON ARMS -- U.M.C.CO. ILION. N.Y.

The pistol features hard Rubber or "Gutta Percha" grips, fully checkered and in perfect condition. A lever on the right side releases the barrel, which flips upwards for extraction and reloading. There is even a nice manual extractor on the left side of the pistol. This also shows serial number 304 on the bottom of the barrel, which matches the number under the grips. The hammer has a rather ingenious mechanism that moves the rimfire firing pin up and down alternately, so only one barrel fires at a time. It appears to function correctly, but we have not verified this. The bores show rifling, but also some wear.

Found in many, many Western Movies these have become an old CLASSIC OF THE AMERICAN WEST. In splendid condition and ready to display!
