    American Hartford Arms Co USA 1878 Patent ‘Challenge’ .30 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre 5 Shot Revolver. Sn 16668 - 16668

    This ‘Challenge’ Model revolver is one of many revolvers based on S&W and Colt Patents produced in the 1860’s through to the late 1870s with dynamic or quirky names to attract sales. The American Hartford Arms Co were responsible for producing many of these 1878 patent revolvers with dynamic names and although not bearing their manufacturer mark was most likely made by them. This is an excellent original condition factory nickel plated .30 Rim Fire 5 shot revolver. The top of the 2 ½” octagonal barrel is stamped with the model name ‘Challenge’ and one barrel flat is stamped ' PAT'D APRIL 23 1878'. The underside of the barrel is numbered ‘471’. The bore has crisp rifling and just staining and residue to be expected. The cylinder can be removed by depression of a lever on the underside of the frame and removal of the cylinder spigot. The revolver has a shrouded trigger and the action operates correctly, is single action only. It has a blade fore sight, grooved frame rear sight and black vulcanite grips. The price for this revolver worthy of further research includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre rim fire revolver no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 16668
