What revolver is this; manufacturer & history?

A chambre for only 3 bullits; the wooden grip is new and not original.

Where did you get that? I am clearly missing a connection that some of you guys have. I'm thinking it will likely be a shame that the grips have been replaced. Can't wait to learn more.

You can find some older weapons early on in estate sales and garage sales believe it or not.

Yeah I'll do some checking into that. I think a big part of my problem is location. I'm in ma.
I keep a close eye on the local auction houses and they occasionally come up with stocks and parts and accessories but never guns.

Yeah you are definitely not in one of the friendliest gun states. Don't know your state laws but there may be a law against selling at estate/garage sales. Most auction houses don't have an FFL which is why they can't sell firearms. I know a lot of dealers will get contacted to buy a lot of guns from estates where the beneficiaries don't want anything to do with them.

I wouldn't be surprised if they can't even sell antiques.

That is a home made pistol. The rear and front sights will put it some where in the late 1950s maybe later. The barrel has been cut from a rifle. The "Dragoon" trigger guard ala Ruger Super Hawk. Many pistols were made in school shops back in the 50s. I suspect this is one. This type of firearm will not have a name or Ser# it is contraban under Federal Law. You can surrender it or throw in the river.:eek:

I have to agree with Durangokid about it being home made. I would certainly not shoot it. Home-made guns like this are legal they are just not supposed to be sold.

Durangokid 04-21-2012 02:05 AM

Home made firearms are not legal. They are legal if you describe to the BATF what you intend to make. If the BATF approves the project you will recieve a number which will be stamped in a BATF prescribed manner. This firearm may not be sold or transfered. Firearms of this type without BATF documents are contriband. This gun has been transfered already. This pistol is contriband.:eek:

Cannot see the detail on that one (need more pixels, in focus) There have been single shot "revolvers"- The Savage Model 101 looked a bit like that one. Are there any marlings on the gun?
