Sharps & Hankins Model 1C Pepperbox Pistol

  • Maker: Sharps
  • Model: Pepperbox
  • Caliber: .22

  • Description: Serial #1691, .22 RF, 2 1/2 barrel cluster with very good bores that have some mild freckling within the grooves. This is a very nice little, matching numbered pistol that has 80-85% of the original bright blue remaining on the barrels that has mixed with minor freckling on the balance, while the brass frame has about 60-70% of the original silver plate remaining over an overall pale yellow-ochre patina. The rosewood grips have nearly all of their original piano varnish finish remaining, and some minor handling marks and blemishes on either side. The mechanism is tight and functions flawlessly. This is a fine-near excellent example of a Sharps .22 pepperbox overall. Antique
