This is a very wild little design on this gun. This gun was manufactured by the Lucius W Pond company of Worcester, Massachusetts. It has their maker's Mark along the top of the barrel as well as the September 8, 1863 patent date. This is one of the many varieties of guns that were designed in hopes to avoid the Rollin White patent on rimfire cartridges that was held by Smith & Wesson. According to Flayderman's guide to antique arms these guns were manufactured from 1863 until 1870 and he notes that only 5,000 of this .32 caliber version are estimated to have been made. This .32 caliber revolver has removable individual steel chambers that loaded through the front. As you can see it is missing the sliding portions from the cylinder and it is priced accordingly. The gun is also made with the hook style cartridge ejector that doubles as the cylinder pin. This one has production numbers of 1,482. The frame of the gun as well as the grip is constructed of brass and the brass still retains a fine amount of the original silver plated finish from the factory. On the handle of the gun it has the original 2 piece Walnut wood grips intact. On the bottom of the grip it has the hole where the screwdriver tool was at one time and it is still present. The mechanics of the gun still has spring but no longer catches on the positions. They have also removed the striker off of the hammer. This is a wild looking little gun that displays well and is priced right!
