Engraved BRITISH Antique .36 Cal. BAR HAMMER Percussion PEPPERBOX Revolver
1840s 6-Shot Self Defense Revolver
Here we present an antique British Percussion Pepperbox Revolver, made circa the 1840s in Great Britain. This pepperbox is one of the smaller ones for this era, featuring 6 shots of .36 caliber ball with 2-3/4 inch barrels. It was meant to be worn on a belt for self-defense. The mechanism is double action only. As these were considered “point and shoot” short range defensive weapons or “belly guns”, the market did not seem to object to the limitation of not having sights.
The overall condition is good. The action functions, but the trigger return spring is weak, requiring the user to manually reset it. All bores are in dark but remain in good shape. The grips are firm in good shape. Engraving remnants can be seen on the frame, trigger guard, and pommel. A fantastic early British revolver!
