This is an example of a unique 19th century style French ring gun copy that was made most likely in the late 20th Century. The German silver ring band has a light floral type engraving and is marked "LE PETIT PROTECTOR". The small hand rotated 5-shot pinfire cartridge cylinder must be removed for loading/unloading. The pins of the cartridges are struck by the base of the hammer. The flip top jewelry style case has a "LE PETIT/PROTECTOR" marked silver oval on top of the lid. Four pinfire rounds are included.
Very fine as custom made. The ring retains 90% niter blue finish showing thinning and cycling marks. The German silver is fine. Mechanically excellent. The custom case is fair as it is in pieces with a detached lid.
