Please click the image for a larger version
scarce unmarked Metropolitan Arms "Police" model .36 caliber percussion revolver. Serial number 2182, within the range Flayderman cites for unmarked specimens. Appears all matching except un-numbered wedge. Only about 2750 produced. 4-1/2" barrel. Metal parts have a light patina overall with some scattered pitting on the iron parts and the brass parts having an appearance of having been polished at some point. Wood grip has been sanded with the metal somewhat proud of the wood, which also has a couple corner chips. Appears to have all of the original nipples, one of which is chipped. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
