Here is a neat set! It is a very cool little gun that was made in Windsor, Vermont. This is the .31 caliber pepperbox style pistol made by the firm of Robbins and Lawrence. They were located in Windsor, Vermont and manufactured approximately 7000 of these guns from 1851 until 1854. These guns were designed differently from most of their pepperbox counterpart of the day. The barrels stay still while the striker rotated to strike the nipples for each cylinder. The barrel unit is changed on the bottom which allows the barrel cluster to tilt down for capping. The mechanics of this gun still has spring and snaps as it should when the triggers are used but the striker no longer rotates. The side of the gun frame has the ornate engraved scroll work. These guns were produced with the frame and grip with the blued finish and the barrels were browned from the factory. The barrel has matching scroll work as well as the "ROBBINS & LAWRENCE CO" stamping and the 1849 patent date. The grips of the gun have the 2 original Walnut wood grips intact. They have a beautiful look with a nice amount of the original factory varnish intact. On the bottom of the grip it has the serial number of 846. What makes this pistol extra special is that it is accompanied by an original factory box and accessories. The mahogany case has the original Robbins & Lawrence marked powder flask. It also has an original tin of percussion caps. As you can see this is a good looking set all the way around.
