Our Assessment: This is just a very good example of the "pocket pistol" so prevalent through the early 1900's amd produced all the way to WWII. This one is in very good plus condition and could easily be a shooter. Add this to your collection or take this gun out to a cowboy action shooting side match. It won't let you down.
