C.S. Shattuck Arms Co."Unique" Squeezer Four Barrel Pistol

.22 Rimfire, 1 3/8" 4-barrel cluster. Unmarked exterior, number 35 on breech face and breech of barrels. Nickel finish, blued barrel latch and extractor. Squeeze firing action activated by pushing up on the bottom of the grip, which fired the barrels via a rotating firing pin in the breech face, similar to the system used in Sharps 4-barrelled pepperboxes during the mid-19th century. 

 

Condition:

About excellent retaining nearly all of its nickel finish with very good bore, and a fully functional mechanism. Original extractor retained in frame, removed and used to push empty cartridges out of the chambers. A very fine example of a scarce piece of pocket pistol curiosa.
