Custom Made Smith & Wesson Type Lever-Action Magazine Repeating Pistol
Regional Firearms Auction – February 27 & 28 2010
Rock Island Auction Company – -(AmmoLand.com)- This is an expertly made recreation of a Smith & Wesson Volcanic style lever-action pistol.
These type of pistols were the predecessors of the Volcanic and New Haven Arms/Winchester lever action firearms.
This particular pistol has a half-round/half-octagon barrel with front-loading integral magazine. The pistol has an iron frame and loading lever with round finger hole and attached spur.
The two-piece grips are rosewood with flat bottoms and a varnish finish. The barrel has a pinched steel front sight blade. A fixed rear sight is located on the receiver.
The sides of the receiver are decorated with simple scroll engraving and the top of the receiver is engraved with a leaf motif.
The top barrel flat is roll-stamped with the legend: “SMITH & WESSON/NORWICH CT./PATENT/CAST STEEL”. The pistol functions fine with slight timing issues.
This pistol is extremely difficult to distinguish from an original example which is almost non-existent (and worth many of tens of thousands of dollars).
The condition code is OC PRF ( See RIA Auction for Exact Condition Details)
Auction Estimate: $7,000 – $15,000
