Description:

One of only 300 with the 6" barrel. Marked "PATENT FEB. 14, 1854/NEW HAVEN, CONN." The omission of the "VOLCANIC" markings indicates that the pistol was manufactured after Oliver Winchester assumed control of the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. and reorganized it as the New Haven Arms Co. in April 1857. Floral scroll engraved receiver. "2079" on grip frame, right grip panel and lever. Includes a research letter from noted firearms author Herbert Houze that confirms its authenticity. Provenance: Dr. Gerald Klaz collection.
