Hammond Single Shot Pistol Carbine 32 Long RF With Shoulder Stock Connecticut Arms & Manufacturing Co.

This is one of the very scarce Hammond single shot pistols with detachable shoulder stock that fill an unusual niche in firearms design and manufacture. The Hammond brothers went through some trials and tribulations getting into business and in spite of having a very well designed and made product, they had to close their doors in 1890. Known mostly for the powerful short barreled version called the Bulldog, the carbine versions are much more difficult to find especially in calibers other than 44 and still having their detachable butt stock. This example features a 14-1/4 barrel chambered for 32 long rim fire, combination post and globe front sight, adjustable peep and notch rear sight, unique pivoting breech system, checkered hard rubber grips and detachable stock. Metal finish is a pleasant gray and brown patina blend while the bore is moderately pitted with strong enough rifling to impart a spin and the grips are completely sound with no cracks or chips. The action works properly (bring to half cock, press button and rotate to the left) with the extractor pushing out and then snapping back into position as it should (pretty cool) and the hammer holds firmly at half and full cock. A really neat addition to any firearms collection and sure to generate interest of both the intellectual and the monitory kind.If you have questions please email us at tangoyankee_llc@yahoo.com This will be listed for auction on Gun Broker the evening of March 11th.
