This is an example of a mid 19th century pinfire revolver with folding trigger. This small pistol operates in both double and single action mode and appears to be mechanically functional. The mainspring is strong, and the full cock notch works correctly. No half-cock notch is used, but apparently the hammer can rest between the pins of the cartridges. The bore of the 3-1/4" barrel has scattered pitting visible over the length of the bore. Strangely this pistol barrel does not appear to have been rifled, as most other examples of these pistols we encounter. The walnut grips flare at the base in a saw handle style. Shown with the folding trigger down, the large trigger allows easy double action firing, or the hammer may be cocked for single action use. The revolver has a speckled gray brown antique patina.

The loading gate on this example appears to be a replacement. The original spring catch has been replaced with a overlaying spring secured with a screw. The only way to currently open the gate is to loosen the spring screw and rotate it to the side to allow clearance for the gate to swing upward and expose the breech end of the cylinder for loading. The cartridge ejector rod is mounted and retained by a boss at the side of the octagon portion of the barrel. Unlike later Colt revolvers, this ejector rod is all manual in operation. Press the rod to the rear to eject the cartridge, and return it manually to the front, to engage a latching spring. No return spring is used, so the rod must be manually returned after each use. The latch spring holds the rod snugly in position.
