Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverUsed£ 499
This revolver is totally unique and a prototype for a model that never, as far as my research has taken me, ever went into production.
It looks and feels like, a lady’s gun, with the purpose of self-protection in the late 19th century, what you might call a “handbag gun”.
It measures 5 inches overall length with a 2 + 3/8ths inch barrel.
It has cut-away slots on the right side to demonstrate the internal mechanism.
It’s not been machined for either rimfire or centre fire. The hammer is not finished, nor is there a slot for the hammer to strike the cartridge, leaving the option for either rim or centre fire.
The calibre is unique - .34.
Nickel plating is around 97%.
Never been fired, never had a cartridge through its chambers.
Manufactured circa1865 – 1870.
A totally unique piece.
Mechanically (double action) it is perfect. I hope my pictures tell the story.
I’ve tried to describe this revolver as honestly and as accurately as I can, if you have any questions, or if you’d like more photo’s please email me, only too happy to respond.
