    ~ Factory Engraved John Walch Ten Shot Pocket Percussion Revolver ~


    This rare .31" calibre super imposed revolver is of steel construction with a brass frame and plain walnut grip.

    This is one of approximately 1,500 to 2,000 brass frame variations of the Walch Double Hammer revolver manufactured from 1860 to 1862 for John Walch and partner J.P. Lindsay by New Haven Arms Company controlled by its president and major stockholder Oliver Winchester and was made in the same factory and at the same time as the Henry rifle. It fires ten shots from five chambers. The cylinder is twice as long so that two loads can be put in the same chamber. There is a channel leading from the front load to the right nipple, and the left nipple fires directly into the rear of the chamber. When the trigger is pulled, the right hammer drops firing the front load. The trigger must be released before it can be pulled a second time to fire the rear load.

    The top flat of the barrel is very clearly stamped...

    WALCH FIRE-ARMS. CO. NEW-YORK
    PAT'd FEB.8.1859

    It has a brass post front sight and no rear sight.

    It is presented in a later oak lockable case with green felt lining and a copy label. This has a blank brass plate to the top and its key.

    Inside are an unmarked bullet mould, the original rammer, an unmarked antique powder flask, an empty percussion cap tin, wadding, shot and a modern tool to remove the nipples.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The revolver is 8.75 inches (22 cm) long with a 3.25 inches (8 cm) barrel.

    The revolver weighs 0.62 Kg.

    The case is 10.25 inches (26 cm) wide by 6.25 inches (16 cm) deep by 2 inches (5 cm) high.

    The entire set weighs 1.57 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The revolver is in excellent overall condition, a few areas of light pitting on the left side of the barrel and on the cylinder. The grips are sound bar some very light knocks on the lower edge. The action works smoothly as intended on both triggers and the nipples are in good order. Some traces of the original bluing remain.

    The case is in good order and locks tight.

    The loading rod is fine as is the bullet mould. The powder flask is a little dented but the spring works well.

    Please note the percussion caps are not included, just the tin.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our Portsmouth shop.
