Chambered for the Volcanic #1 cartridge (.31 Cal) The six inch barreled variation is found very infrequently. A total production of 225 Target models were produced from 1857 through 1862. Total production of the new Haven Volcanic pistols is estimated at 3300. These are first successful repeating cartridge pistols manufactured in the United States and were the beginning of the Winchester evolution. Barrel is marked "NEW HAVEN CONN PATD FEB 14 1854" Brass frame with iron ring lever and two piece walnut grips. Serial numbered 505 on frame under left grip, both grips are serial number matching. A magazine capacity of 8 rounds with the ability to have additional cartridges in the chamber as well as the lifter assembly. CONDITION. Very Good. The pistol appears all original and authentic. The brass frame has turned a pleasant mustard patina. The barrel turned an even brown patina. All marking are clear and legible. The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling. The two piece walnut grips are worn but full sized and solid with exception of a very small chip at base of right grip. The frame has several storage dings on the left side that in no way effect the guns functioning. The action is crisp and properly functioning. TDW
