unusual "Duplex" cartridge revolver by Osgood Gun Works, Norwich, Conn. Unusual design where the cylinder arbor is a 32 caliber barrel holding one 32 rimfire cartridge, with 8 .22 caliber chambers in the cylinder. A selectable firing surface on the hammer allows the operator to choose which round is discharged. Serial number 3691. Metal parts are nicely marked with all three markings present and have 90%+ original nickel nickel finish overall, which is bright but shows scattered scratches from handling and scattered minor flaking. Frame exhibits a repaired crack near the hinge. Original hard rubber grips are very fine except for one chip along the backstrap on the right side. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
