    I will admit I was not a big commercial break top revolver fan. So I am never really learned about them. So in looking around, stumbled on this little beauty.. Wow.. And of course, from what I have read they are very rare.. only a couple 1000 made..

    I would love to see the ad that these were sold in.. what was its desired intent???.. Alley fighting after the bullets run out, or letter opening ???

    Who made that revolver with the Bayonet/knife
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    You know, I humbly apologize for that oversight in my original posting. Was so blow away by them I lost all sense of propriety. It was made by Harrington & Richardson
