Antique Spanish Style Double Barrel Pistol

.41 caliber. 6" barrel length. SN: 27. Double-barrel centerfire pistol with tip up action and lanyard loop to pistol butt. Item displays a pewter finish overall with black walnut checkered grips. Top of barrels signed "LUIS/RIVA" with an "{Arrow}" pointing to each name. The pistol is otherwise unsigned but features exposed double hammers, double triggers, and a bead sight mounted between barrels. Item is incomplete and is missing the connecting lug for barrels. Right hammer has been sheared off while both firing pins are stuck fast.


Poor. Bores are very dark with rust throughout. Metal finish shows discoloration and wear overall with brown patina forming to edges and around frame. Checkered grips have handling wear and mars overall. Both hammers are rusted and move with difficulty. Release mechanism works, but barrels are extremely loose. Action not functional. 

Estimate: $100 - $200
