I got this beautiful set of Allen & Thurber Pepperbox pistols from my brothers gun collection. Both of these are 31 cal. and have a 1845 patent date stamped on them. Officers liked carrying these because they were double action, you had 6 shots, and it would fit in your pants pocket quite easy. What makes these unique, is that the cylinder and the barrel are made together, and no hammer sticking up to cock each time you wanted to fire it. This set came with a powder flask, and a bullet mold. I am very lucky to have gotten these fort collection. Thanks brother!
