According to the seller, the grips are "cracked" and "broken". The bore has, "some rust". The finish has "rust" and the "cylinder indexes but is loose".

He describes the condition of the grips as "fair" and the overall condition of the gun as "good". I wonder what it would take for him to consider a gun less than "good"?? : )

when I see stuff like this gun...it makes me think that crack has been around longer than I thought it has... or maybe the gunmaker was drinking from lead jugs..hahaha

What's wrong with it?? I've seen alot worse than that. I guess it is true what they say. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

This is not a handgun for the mass market. It is a curiosity of that period of time. As far as rare pieces from 110 years ago generally look, this one is in pretty good shape. It is not my cup of tea, but I know a guy that has a collection of "vest pocket" pistols. Mostly derringers that a gambler would have around a card table. People with collections like that love things like the pistol shown. From their perspective, they would not understand our love for EELL wood and gun upgrades.

pretty cool if you ask me.....hammerless mini wheel gun! from early 1900s
smith and wesson made a little hammerless also back then. Not as small as these.
for its age that is good condition. Where not talking NRA condition quidelines on these old plinkers.
I have a 1896 S&W hamerless safety in .32S&W functions fine to boot!

Heck its GOOD that its still around!
