Less than 500 of the No. 2 pistols were manufactured in 1854-1855. Each is highly sought after given these pistols are very significant in the evolution of lever action firearms and the famous Winchester and Smith & Wesson firearms companies. They predate the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. This example has attractive factory scroll engraving on the frame, the Smith & Wesson address and cast steel markings on the barrel, "214" on the left side of the grip frame under the grip. Provenance: The Dr. Gerald Klaz Collection
