Here is a very tough to find little gun. This is the 1st model .28 caliber Ells Patent revolver. According to Flayderman's guide there were only 625 of these guns produced. They state that they made these guns from 1857 until 1859. They were manufactured by the Josiah Ells Company in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. This one has the assembly numbers of "10" stamped on the inside of the 2-piece walnut wood grips. The guns have a very interesting appearance with the ornately engraved sides of the frames. The bar style hammer has the "1854" patent date on the right hand side. The left hand side of the hammer has the "J. ELLS" maker markings. Along the top of the hammer it reads "PATENT". The double action mechanics work well. The barrel of this gun measures only 2-1/4th inches in length. In our 25 years in the business this is only the 2nd one of these we have been able to offer.
