This is a very beautifully crafted single shot vest or pocket pistol from about the 1850s. This gun is almost more of a work of art than a pistol. The frame of the gun is made of iron and it is beautifully engraved as you can see in the images. These are the version that when you cock back the hammer the trigger, which is concealed in the frame, drops down for firing. The action works but the spring that pulls the trigger back into the frame is quite strong enough to pull it all the way up. The frame is engraved with intricate designs. The metal parts have been retoned in more recent times and display beautifully. The barrel of the gun is 2-3/4ths inches in length and fires a bullet of approximately .44 caliber. BOOM! The barrel of the gun still unscrew for cleaning. The original handle of the gun is in tact and made of a single piece of beautiful wood. On the bottom of the grip, it has the small silver compartment. This is a great looking little gun.
