This is a RARE item with less than a few hundred made, so surviving samples are far and few between. This is a strange one as the trigger and hammer are all one. When the hammer is pulled back the trigger comes up. The condition is very good, sharp and crisp. The only marking is on the barrel, 1776 commemorating our Independence from Britain. This is a very RARE item and no damage to the metal or grips. You must pull the trigger rearward and down to fire it.
