Description:

Marked "NEW HAVEN CONN/PATENT FEB. 14. 1854." 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. One of only an estimated 850 in this configuration before production ended in 1860. Magazine spring absent.
