  • W.W. Marston Pocket Model .31 Caliber Revolver. Barrel length 6 ¼”. This is 4th type with fluted cylinder and rounded grip top to frame contour. Very good plus bore. Action works perfectly. Grips have 98% original varnish. Literature on these revolvers would indicate production numbers at 13,000. We doubt these numbers as we have been in business 42 years and sold a great many antique guns and we can recall maybe 8 or 10 of these sold by us. Note: Barrel marked “The Union” which was one of several barrel markings used by Marston.

  • Unusual Large Custom .36 Caliber Revolver. Revolver in .36 caliber with no markings. We believe this was a gunsmith built piece that was inspired from other revolvers. The frame has a Colt Walker like cut out for the grips. The two-shot cylinder locks in place by a sliding gate attached to the left-hand side of the frame. Overall, this gun looks like there was inspiration from both the Remington and Whitney Revolvers. We think this gun was built in maybe the 1920’s-1930’s.

  • Nepperhan .31 caliber 5-shot revolver, serial #531. Barrel address is sharp and clear. Gun has no finish but is generally sharp with no pits or abuse of any kind.
