...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,
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
