Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Continental Arms Co. -- Pepperbox Pistol Antique Derringer 5 shot

This is an antique Pepperbox Pistol. It is made by the Continental Arms Co. Norwich, Ct. Patented August 28, 1866 (stamped on the cylinder and still readable). The cylinder will rotate sometimes, but the clearance between the hammer and end of cylinder is way too much (worn parts?). The hammer is worn internally and will not stay in the cocked position most of the time. The overall visual conditon is ok, however this is NOT a shooter. I believe this is an early blackpowder rimfire. I had showed the pistol to several Antique Gun Dealers at a show, and this arm is a bona fide antique and is exempt from FFL requirements. The overall metal surfaces are dark brown. The handle grips appear to be wood. There is a repaired crack on the side away from the shield side. The handles are tight. This pistol is listed in the standard catalog of firearms (c.2007, pg 358) as having a high value when in mint condition. The condition here is probably fair, but look at the photos and make your own decision. Please check local laws pertaining to ownership of black powder/antique firearms before bidding. It is the buyers responsibility to check on legaity in their community. This item is available to USA bidders, 21 years of age or older (please send copy of drivers license/ID with payment). Buyer pays $15 Insured S&H USA and agrees to send payment within 5 days of auction end. Money Orders and Cashiers check payments ship fast, Personal checks held 15 days. No PayPal. I will email winner an invoice after the auction. Buyer to reply to invoice, or contact seller within 2 days of auction end.
