    RARE, Large,1865-1868 American Civil War Era, Connecticut Arms & Manufacturing Co, Hammond's 1864 Patent, .41 Rim Fire Calibre 'Swing Breech' Bulldog Derringer Pistol. Sn 13998 - 13998

    The Connecticut Arms & Manufacturing Co. was one of many firms formed during the American Civil War. Founded in 1863 by brothers Henry B. and Lewis Hammond, the company was located at Naubuc, a town located about ten miles southeast of Hartford. This is an excellent .41 Rim Fire calibre single shot 'swing breech' loading Hammond's 1864 patent Bulldog pistol. Introduced in 1865, approximately 7,400 of these single shot pistols were manufactured before production ceased in 1868. Loading was accomplished by depression of a steel button on top of the breech when the pistol is at half cock and pivoting the breech block to the left. One of the largest Derringers, It has a 4" octagonal barrel which is stamped ' Connecticutt Arms & Manf'g Co Naubuc Conn'. The rim of the swing out chamber is marked 'Patented Oct 25 1864' in small lettering. The barrel’s bore has staining consistent with age & crisp rifling. The pistol’s original chequered brown 'gutta percha' grips are excellent and undamaged. The pistols loading and firing actions work perfectly. Price for this rare Civil War era pistol includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique pistol, no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 13998
