lever action pistol carbine. Make:Extremely scarce The Volcanic Repeating Arms Co., Model: lever action pistol carbine, Serial # – Firearms: 32, Caliber: .41 cal., Barrel Length: 16.5" octagonal, Condition: very good plus condition. It is believed that less than 300 lever action Navy pistols where constructed with 16" barrels. This example still retains a large majority of the silver wash on theframe side plates. The serial number is located on the right side of the lever flat at the top portion closest to the frame as well as on the left side of the grip frame underneath the grip panel, on the left side of the shoulder stock mounting lug underneath the walnut stock and on the underside of the brass rifle style butt plate. The top of the barrel flat is marked "THE VOLCANIC/REPEATING ARMS & CO./PATENT NEW HAVEN CONN./FEB.14 1854" with the second line appearing to be a light double strike on the "ARMS CO.". The brass frame peeks through the silver wash finish on some edges as well as on the right side just above the smooth walnut grip panel and the left side of the frame just forward of the side plate. The silver wash also shows some toning and a few light tool marks but retains nice strong edges and lines. The front sight is a pinch post and the rear is a dovetail mounted strap type notch with a knurled adjustment wheel. The bore shines bright with nice rifling and a small amount of frosting at the muzzle end which on the outside still retains the knurled wedding band. The barrel still retains its edges not quite as crisp when new but certainly nowhere near any point of rounding off. The barrel has a deep brown mostly mottled patina throughout with light scattered handling wear and freckling. It also shows some light tool marks most noticeable of the wear is on the front rotating portion of the barrel surround. The hammer spur is checkered. The shoulder stock retaining pin has a knurled tightening wheel. The grip panels are a smooth walnut along with the butt stock. They show only a few minor light handling marks throughout with some pressure indentations most noticeable a circular form on the rear side of the panels. The shoulder stock has brass reinforcement rings around the screws that retain the mounting lug. The brass rifle butt plate shows only the lightest of handling. A few screw heads show turning marks and the underside of the lifter shows a few tool marks as well. All items sold AS IS per terms of the auction. Please read terms.
