Description:

This interesting ring gun was manufactured by Francis C. Lebeda. The ring itself is of brass construction with the cylinder, bar trigger, and plunger of blued steel. Includes a copper case with a pewter plaque on top to make it appear to be a mere can of Copenhagen chewing tobacco containing four glass vials holding shooting materials. Chewing tobacco, much like these ring pistols, have been a classic combination with the saloons and gamblers of the old west, making this cased set all the more unsuspecting. A plaque on the bottom of the case tells the family history of master gunsmith Francis C. Lebeda.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as custom made, retains 98% of the original nitre blue finish with some very light edge wear and mostly bright brass. Mechanically excellent. The case is excellent showing an attractive antique patina and minimal handling/storage evidence.
