Produced by an unknown maker with a design suggesting European, possibly French, manufacture. The revolver is fitted with a set of over/under barrels and a 2-layer cylinder with 30 chambers. Blade and notch sights, with a fixed double firing pin configured to shoot each barrel in sequence and a smooth grip.

Rating Definition:

About good, with a gray patina overall and scattered light pitting overall. The grips are good with some chips and dents. Mechanically functions as the hammer retracts, but needs adjustment as the hand does not engage the cylinder to rotate. Write has never seen another example of a 30-Shot Revolver!
