    HANDMADE "ODDITY" - AN INTERESTING HAND-FABRICATED SINGLE SHOT PISTOL - The 1 7/8" length, half round- half octagon barrel is integral with the frame and grip straps. Wood grips. Accompanying this lot is a hand made leather wrist cuff. An interesting mechanism of brass has been designed to attach to the wrist cuff. The brass spring loaded mechanism houses the pistol which can be propelled forward making the pistol more easily accessible to whoever is wearing the wrist strap when a release wire is pulled. Using single letter die stamps, someone stamped the leather wrist strap "KING FARO- P. SPENCE- TOMBSTONE".

    Condition: The pistol is uniformly pitted and appears quite old. Wood grips are sound but well worn. The leather wrist strap with its brass mechanism is not nearly as old as the pistol.
