Connecticut Arms Co., front loading pocket revolver. Serial number 2201. One of the many novel attempts to avoid infringing on the Rollin White patent held by Smith & Wesson. Cartridges were loaded from the front of the cylinder which was not bored through, and extracted using the unusual hook shaped extractor mounted to the frame. Metal parts have a dark untouched patina overall with a little original blue finish on the barrel. Wood grips are very good, free of cracks, with a couple minuscule corner nicks. Hammer cocks, but cylinder does not revolve. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
