The Volcanic Repeating Arms Company was only in business for just under two years before being absorbed by the New Haven Arms Company. During this time 50 employees and several contractors built assembled and finished just over 3000 firearms. Of these approximately 300 .41 CAL. pistol carbines were manufactured. This 16 1/2 inch variation serial number 483 with detachable stock and wooden case with wiping rod is one of the rarest of all examples. Blue finished 16 1/2 inch barrel with integral magazine with a capacity of 20 rounds with tapered post front sight and drift adjustable rear sight. Gun metal brass alloy fame with iron ring lever, mounted with two piece American walnut grips. The detachable shoulder stock has a tapered iron insert with two retaining screws. The walnut stock is fitted with a diminutive crescent buttplate. The case measures 24 1/2 X 7 1/2 inches. Velvet lined partitions for the stock and carbine as well as a compartment for ammunition. A contemporary wiping rod is inset in the rear of the case. Case is fitted with period brass hardware. CONDITION. Very fine with barrel retaining over 60% original factory applied blue finish. Address is typically weak struck but is legible. Gun Metal brass alloy frame is very good with numerous small scratches as is to be expected. The grips are very fine with matching serial numbers "483" found on inside of both grips. Grips appear to have had an additional coat of finish applied as some earlier date. Detachable stock is very good as partially refinished. The iron has been cleaned and the wood is very lightly sanded and refinished. No numbers were observed on the stock. The bore is slightly frosted but otherwise bright with strong rifling. The case is excellent with strong solid partitions. Lining is worn from use but appears original. The exterior has been expertly refinished and looks consistent with carbine. Action is crisp and mechanics function properly.TDW
