    ...ON HOLD...ECLIPSE VEST POCKET PISTOL

    This is a Belgian copy of the ECLIPSE vest pocket pistol, made by Johnson and Bye , made in America around 1875.
    It is in a really unusual calibre, 5.2mm ? IT WON’T CHAMBER a .22 cartridge, and a .22 bullet won’t go in the bore !
    It’s about 5” long , with a 2 1/2” barrel,
    Circa 1878.
    Varnished grips.
    Very strong springs, and a very tight action.
    A little tarnished on one side , ( probably due to being stored that side down).
    It has a maker’s mark which looks like a pistol ?
    Chequered hammer spur.
    I have not come across one like it before.....Read full description
