This is a small calibre double barreled pistol that offered the defender two chances for survival over the standard single shot pistol. The barrel is only 3 3/16" long with an overall length of 6 1/4". The tiny sight is superfluous as such a gun was accurate at only close range. The grips are polished walnut.

The weapon was loaded by unscrewing the barrels. The name "Allen & Thurber" is only partially seen on the barrel. The serial number "261" is stamped under the barrel.

The spring for the right hand barrel no longer holds the cocking mechanism but the left hand barrel is still fully functional. In either case, firing such an antique could prove dangerous to both the user and the relic.
This is an original and authentic 1850's Allen & Thurber handgun and deserves respect as a relic of America's antebellum past.

Shipping insurance is highly recommended.
