    Description

    Canon-Style Barrel Gun Cane.

    Overall length is 33 1/2-inches. This cane conceals canon style percussion pistol that is 8 1/2-inches long including a 5 3/4-inch round barrel. The cane has a carved horn handle and it's mechanism is perfectly concealed. One simply pulls the pistol from the painted shaft and looks down at its percussion chamber that is cocked by pulling a lever mechanism that simultaneously puts tension on a concealed trigger that is now directly under your index finger, and if you wish you can fold the lever and trigger so they can be slipped into the shaft of the cane so this can now be carried loaded and ready to fire.
    Note: It also appears the shaft may be reinforced so that this can also be used as a fighting cane. A very interesting weapon.

    Condition: Very good to Fine. Showing handling wear. Some scuffs to wood, with finish loses. Mechanically sound.
