J.M. Marlin XX STANDARD 1873 22 Revolver Excellent

This Marlin XXX STANDARD 1873 pocket revolver was the second in a series of “Standard” pocket pistols made between 1872 and 1887 with all variations combined totaling about 5000. It features a 3” ribbed barrel, fluted cylinder, nickel plate and mother-of-pearl grips. All serial numbers match (frame, cylinder and barrel). It retains about 92% nickel with some bubbling on the left side of the frame and some loss on either side of the end of the trigger spur and a small patch on each of the backstrap where it meets the frame. The grips are completely sound with no cracks, chips or dings. The bore is smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and a couple of tiny and very sight patches of oxidation (it is the best bore we’ve ever seen in one of these by far – almost like new). The action works perfectly and frame lock-up is vault like while cylinder lock-up is as tight as the design allows (only very sight movement). Inspection of the chambers, cylinder face, forcing cone and surrounding area, recoil plate and bore lead us to believe that this pistol has never been fired. While we may be wrong, we can find no carbon, leading or other indications of it having been fired and the slight oxidation in the barrel could well have happened simply from exposure to the atmosphere for a century and a half. A nice old gentleman who may have dissuaded a piker or two in his day just by staring them down.
