Cal. 41. Fine Navy size pistol with 8" oct bbl that has integral magazine and German Silver pin front sight with drift adjustable rear sight in top flat of the receiver. Top flat of the bbl has the 3-line Volcanic Repeating Arms Company address. Mounted with smooth 2-pc walnut grips that are matching numbered to this pistol inside each grip. SN was noted on the right side of the butt strap under the grip, on the lever and inside each grip. Matching SN is also found inside each sideplate and on each link . According to Flayderman’s Guide to Antique American Firearms only about 1,500 of these scarce pistols were produced in the period 1855-1857. Very few are found today in completely orig configuration with any orig finish remaining. CONDITION: Very good overall with barrel having turned a grey mottled patina with additional coverage of light pinprick surface rust; frame & sideplates show little or no damage or wear , with sharp, clean edges and all the brass retains a wonderful dark coffee colored patina. Grips have nicks & dings, show even wear and retain about all of their contemporary varnish. Right grip has a repaired crack and splice that is very well done. Mechanics are fine, strong bright bore with scattered pitting. TDW
