This relatively obscure gun was a lever-action pistol designed for target shooting. At the time, all other pistols were black powder. A joint venture between Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson led to its creation. This led to the partnership of Smith and Wesson a year later in 1854, along with the creation of the patented .22 rimfire metallic cartridge. One of the world's largest gun companies and the world's most popular cartridge are here because of this obscure pistol. It was manufactured starting in 1853 in .22RF, and .31 and .41 caliber, but these were unpopular due to their unreliability. This non firing gun is a perfect collectors piece or a great steampunk modification gun.
