Pepperbox Pistol


Shameless Womanizer 57929

I like the rotating barrel guns (percussion) and the sharps pepperbox cartridge guns.

 

Are there Uberti/Pietta style copies of the same?

Neither Uberti or Pietta made a pepperbox replica that I know of; however, Hoppes (and a couple other makers?) did make one back in the 70s-80s that show up on the auction sites from time to time. And, originals can sometimes be had reasonably from the auctions stites as well.

In my original reply, I got hung up on the 'rorating barrel' part of your post and completely overlooked the 'Sharpes Pepperbox' part. Uberti, Miroku, and HJS all made replicas of the .22 caliber Sharps no. 1 Pepperbox. HJS also made a model called the Lone Star Deringer that was chambered for .38 S&W. They show up on the auction sites every now & then. The Gunrunner Auctions Navy Arms one referenced looks like one of Uberti's, was made in 1968 (from the date code in the picture) and is chambered in 22long rifle. I have a Miroku that I think was made in the '70s and is also chambered for 22LR. It came in a velvet covered, satin lined presentation case.

Mark Twain said the only safe place to be when a Pepperbox was fired was behind the fellow pulling the trigger... I think he was referring to the Allen version :rolleyes:

It was in "Roughing it". And the Allen was apparently prone to chain fires. A fellow stagecoach passenger had one. The line goes something like "The Allen was so comprehensive that when he aimed at the bole of a tree, he fetched the nigh mule" of the coach's team.

You might have seen it here. Happy Trails had a replica for sale maybe four months ago. When no one bought it, he put it on Gunbroker, where I picked it up for $50 more than his original offer.
