When it comes to finding a great rarity, this one will be hard to beat. This is a rare 16" Volcanic Pistol, a very difficult to find variation of the large brass-frame Volcanic. It is accompanied with its original, matching numbered attachable shoulder stock. It's in wonderful, untouched condition.That in itself makes it a very desirable and top of the charts antique arm that any collector would proudly add to his collection at a handsome price. It doesn't end there though. It is accompanied with its original double compartment holster, with one side form-fitted to hold its excellent condition pistol and the other for the near mint condition shoulder stock. But wait,,,, the holster is embossed with the word 'Volcanic" on its strap, PLUS it's numbered to the gun and stock! Hold on,,,, there's more! It is accompanied with an ambro-type of a man holding the pistol! Think it couldn't get any better than this???? It does! There's a coin silver inlay on the right grip that reads, "W. C. Dodge". Dodge was a U.S. patent attorney who wrote a pamphlet during the Civil War describing the features and benefits of rapid-fire breech loading rifles to the military. He was one of the main champions of the Henry Rifle. A factory engraved (Nimschke Style) brass-framed Briggs Patent Rifle was presented to Dodge by the New Haven Arms Company in 1865 in recognition of his efforts and was sold at auction in California a few years ago for $220,000.00. One could easily assume that this particular Volcanic Pistol/Carbine was the apple of Dodge's eye that spread the seeds of realization concerning the distinct advantages of lever-action breech loaders. This is obviously one of the single most important discoveries ever to come to light concerning the Winchester Family of Arms, unquestionably worthy of the finest museum or personal gun collection. This outfit is not for sale but I thought it appropriate to share it with our website readers. I hope to be able to display it at a gun show in the future, possibly in Las Vegas, Denver or one of Ron Dickson's fine shows in Louisville.
