    This is a US Arms Co Model 38 pocket revolver in 38 rimfire calibre. US Arms were a prolific maker of small handguns of some quality. The makers name is stamped on the barrel as is the model on the top strap. The walnut grips are in good condition as can be seen.

    The revolver is in good working order and profusely engraved.
    The revolver is cased in a "book" that would have been no doubt hidden on a book shelf to give unwanted visitors an unpleasant surprise.
    The leather bound book is contemporary to the revolver and contains some empty rimfire cases. The spine is a little distressed but could be glued if you wish.

    Overall an interesting and curious vintage firearm manufactured in the mid 1880's.
