ALL MATCHING NUMBERS 1861- 1870 Pond’s Patent.32 Rim Fire 6 Shot Belt Revolver With Octagonal Barrel & Detachable Ram Rod. Sn 13208 - 13208
Lucius W. Pond began making his Belt Revolvers around 1861, at a time when America was fighting itself in the American Civil War. For a year or so, Pond was able to produce a number of Belt Revolvers, in partial accordance with a patent issued to Abram Gibson on the 10th July 1860. In 1862, however, Smith & Wesson made a challenge to the Belt Revolver's production. Smith & Wesson's challenge centred on a patent issued for their 'Rollin White' patent, issued in 1855. The court ruled in favour of Smith & Wesson, however Pond (alongside Bacon, Moore and Warner whom were also found infringing that patent) was able to continue producing the Belt Revolver after meeting Royalty agreements with S&W. Ultimately production of Pond’s Belt Revolvers ended in 1870, the final few thousand of which were stamped, "Manuf'd for Smith & Wesson Pat'd April 5, 1855". This is a very good original example of Pond’s .32 Rim Fire 6 shot revolver. It has a 6” octagonal barrel and measures 11 ½” overall length. It is side gate loading and has a small brass blade foresight and notched hammer rear sight. The underside of the barrel, cylinder and grip frame are stamped with matching numbers ‘2031'. The revolver has a small shrouded trigger and the pistol's single action firing mechanism works perfectly. The cylinder is quickly removed for speed loading with a preloaded cylinder by removing its spring loaded detachable ram rod and cylinder retaining pin. The smooth rosewood grip has 4 contemporarily carved notches. There are no visible manufacturer or date marks on this revolver. The price includes UK delivery.
