Manufactured in 1863/64, the Slocum revolver was an attempt to evade Smith & Wesson's possession of Rollin White's patent on bored-through cylinders. The chambers are individual components that slide forward over the ejector rod for loading and unloading. This very fine example has factory floral scroll engraving along with full silver plating. The top of the barrel is marked "B.A.Co PATENT APRIL 14th 1863." Matching assembly numbers are on the barrel, ejector, and grip frame. The period deluxe rosewood case is French-fitted for the revolver and the included sterling silver accessories (screwdriver, cleaning rod and cartridge box). The exterior of the lid has a blank inscription plate.
Exceptionally fine, retaining 85% original silver plating with smooth gray patina on the balance. The engraving is crisp. 97% original case colors remain on the hammer. The grips are excellent with crisp checkering. The engraving is crisp. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with minor handling/storage marks and high spot wear on the lining. An extraordinary factory engraved Brooklyn Arms Slocum Pocket Revolver!
