Scarce Bacon Manufacturing Company 32 caliber pocket revolver. Flayderman 8A-018. Serial number 170. Noted as scarce in Flayderman, he speculates production may have been cut short by an infringement suit from Smith & Wesson/Rollin White. 4" octagon barrel with marking "BACON MFG CO NORWICH CONN". Standard engraving on frame, metal parts are an attractive medium gray patina overall, showing some dings on the cylinder and frame by barrel. Wood grips show much of the original varnish, being worn on the butt edge and showing some handling marks. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
