This rare, possibly unique, revolving rifle is only marked with a patriotic motif on top of frame with some light engraving on sides. It features a 29 - 1/2" heavy full octagon barrel, 7-shot percussion revolving cylinder, 40 bore, checkered straight grip walnut stock with no forend, rifle butt, single trigger, brass trigger guard, iron furniture, hammerless with side toggle. We examined every available image of early revolving rifles and could find no information nor any photographs of any rifle that resembled this example. CONDITION: All metal is a smooth brown patina with usual handling marks. Rifling is still well defined. The wood is excellent, checkering worn smooth but still strong, usual handling marks but no cracks. Cylinder has hand but no visible way to advance unless hand turned and does not seem to cock firing pin. Unusual is probably not strong enough as there may not be another. DB
