New Haven Arms Company Lever Action No 1 Pocket Pistol

.31 caliber, 6.25" barrel, S/N 749. Blued finish, brass frame, varnished walnut grips. Frame and grip serial numbers match. Further disassembly was not performed. Traces of New Haven address and patent information on barrel. Only about 225 of these long barreled pistols were produced ca 1857-1860, making them a scarce variation in the line of "Volcanic" pistols.


Good. Metal toned and retaining traces of what appears to be an older blue finish. Most of the metal a dull gunmetal gray with bluish tones. Markings on barrel very weak. Mechanically functional, but the lever is loose and the cartridge lifter sometimes sticks in the up position. Magazine follower replaced. Brass with an attractive mustard patina. Grips with light to moderate wear, retaining some varnish, with handling bumps and dings and some minor chipping align the sharp edges.

Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000
