SCARCE, 1892-1910 Chicago Fire Arms Company USA .32 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Factory Nickel Plated 7 Shot Repeating Palm Pistol. Sn 15878 - 15878
The Protector Palm Pistol is a small .32 rimfire revolver designed to be the size of a pocket watch and is a unique pistol in that it is not fired using a conventional trigger, but by the operator squeezing his or her fist when the pistol is concealed in the palm of the hand. It was unique in that the revolver was clasped in a fist with the barrel protruding between two fingers and the entire handgun was squeezed in order to fire a round. The Protector Palm Pistol was first patented and built in France in 1882 by Jacques Turbiaux and sold as the "Turbiaux Le Protector" or the "Turbiaux Disc Pistol". Later in 1883 it was built in the USA as The Protector by Minneapolis Firearms Co.. Peter H. Finnegan of Austin, Illinois bought the patent in 1892 and founded the Chicago Fire Arms Co. to make and market the pistols. In anticipation of the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, he contracted the Ames Sword Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts to manufacture 15,000 pistols. Ames made 1,500 of the pistols by the deadline of the exhibition. Finnegan sued for damages and engaged in a lawsuit with Ames. The company countersued and settled with Finnegan, but, through the years, had amassed a large production run of 12,800 pistols. The company sold the inventory and abandoned the design by 1910. Remington manufactured the rimfire ammunition for this pistol, 32 Extra Short and alternatively 32 Protector, until 1920. Most Protectors were nickel-plated to prevent corrosion from being carried in close contact with the owner. These guns were shipped with gutta percha hard rubber inserts for additional protection. This is an excellent fully functioning example of the factiory nickel plated Chicago Firearms Co ‘Protector’ palm pistol. The 1 ¾” barrel has a foliate engraved collar. The barel has a clean bore with crisp rifling. The pistol has the correct disc body with foliate edged engraved decoration and gutta percha decorative disc inserts. The steel centres are marked on both sides with crisp manufacturer and patent detail (all illustrated). The inside of the turn off disc on the left side of the frame and the internal 7 shot rotating cylinder mechanism are both numbered ‘738’. The front of the disc frame has the correct finger spur and safety lever. The rear of the disc frame has the correct sprung steel firing lever with chequered panel gutta percha grip which is undamaged. The price for this hard to find, unusual pistol includes UK delivery.

The Model 1885 Single Shot rifle was John M. Browning’s first design and patent, and it was first single shot to be built by Winchester. The patent for the Model 1885 rifle was what brought John M. Browning and the Winchester Repeating Arms Company together for beginning of their eventual 19-year association. Two models of the Winchester Model 1885 falling-block action were produced, the Low Wall and the High Wall ( Low Wall which showed an exposed hammer and the so-called High Wall whose steel frame covered most of the firing hammer when viewed from the side). Winchester produced nearly 140,000 Single Shot rifles from 1885 to 1920, and it was found that the falling-block Model 1885 had been built with one of the strongest actions known at that time. This is a very good example of the Winchester Model 1885. It has a 26” octagonal barrel (42 ¼” overall). The top barrel flat is crisply signed with Winchester manufacturer detail (illustrated). The barrel's bore has crisp rifling and just staining consistent with age & use. The barrel has calibre detail ‘.32 Cal RF’ and the action tang is numbered ‘3600’ which dates its manufacture to 1886.

SOLD...SOLD...SOLD... (10.12) 1903 Winchester Repeating Arms Company Model 1901 Law Enforcement & Stage Coach Companies 10 Gauge Under Lever Action Shotgun. Sn 15852 - 15852
The Model 1901 was one of the first truly successful repeating shotguns . Its lever-action design was chosen at the behest of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, best known at the time as manufacturers of lever-action firearms such as the Winchester model 1873. Designer John Browning suggested that a pump-action would be much more appropriate for a repeating shotgun, but Winchester management's position was that, at the time, the company was known as a "lever-action firearm company", and felt that their new shotgun must also be a lever-action for reasons of brand recognition. The shotguns were used widely by U.S. law enforcement agencies and stagecoach companies. This Model 1901 in black powder 10 gauge is furnished with a 30” barrel. Its smooth bore has just light staining consistent with age. The top of the barrel has the Winchester address model and calibre detail. It has undamaged metal work with even patina and original wood furniture with steel butt plate. Its under lever action is crisp and it fires perfectly as it should. The left side plate has the Winchester monogram and the steel action tang is stamped with the Winchester name. The weapon is serial number 66008 which dates it to 1903.
