This is the only Volcanic lever action navy pistol noted with the placement of bbl markings “THE VOLCANIC / REPEATING ARMS CO. / PATENT NEW HAVEN CONN. FEB. 14. 1854″ on the left bbl flat as opposed to all other specimens with maker’s mark on top we are aware of.

Front sight is the orig iron pinched pin with fixed rear sight dovetailed in top flat of frame. Frame is gun metal brass and mounted with 2-pc uncheckered straight grain walnut grips numbered to this pistol.

Bbl & magazine tube retain traces of orig finish near the frame with the balance a mottled silver/brown patina with fine pinprick pitting. Frame & sideplates retain strong sharp edges with scattered small dings, dents and scratches with small areas of a grainy appearance which appear to be casting flaws on the left side of frame near grips. Grips are sound, solid and well fit with small filled repair on bottom butt of right grip and some edge wear. Grips retain much of their re-varnished finish. Mechanics are fine. Bore retains good, crisp rifling with areas of pitting. 4-46621 JS160 (22,500-32,500)
