Arrow For Sale 1871 Robin Hood No.1 Long .22L Revolver

This is a little pistol that gun historians will appreciate. This gun is a representation of American History. It was made in the U.S.A. in 1871 at Hood Arms in Connecticut. It's a little "vest pocket" pistol of the "Suicide Special" notoriety. It is a Robin Hood No 1 .22LONG revolver, with light engraving, a spur trigger and the original walnut birdseye grips. It's in GREAT condition, considering it's age. It shows wear, but it obviously never exploded in anyone's hand. I purchased it for $300 in 2017 at Franklin Firearms in Franklin TN. I collect antique firearms and it was purchased as a relic, and there was no transfer involved, due to it's age and the store owner said "only a moron would take a chance on firing it. Todays ammo is far too strong and it would probably blow their hand off." Needless to say, I'VE never fired it! I've cleaned it to the best of my ability then rubbed it with Renaissance Wax, then put it away with my other collectibles.

I'm asking $150. Buyer assumes any/all fees and shipping/Insurance. I was told that no FFL is required; there was no FFL or transfer at the time of purchase, in TN. Contact me for more photos, details, questions, if you'd like to meet up at my LGS and examine it...let me know.
I'm located in Lawndale...South Bay Area of Los Angeles. Torrance, Lawndale,Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Hawthorne. I'm in this area, off the 405 FWY

Thank you for your interest!
Paula

Edgerly779 What does that mean? My local FFL said it's out of his wheelhouse, being a curio/relic. Please advise.

from what i understand, CA defines an antique firearm the same as the federal definition - ie anything manufactured prior to 1899 - and it does not differentiate between pistols, shotguns, or rifles.

good luck with the sale, if i had the discretionary funds lying around i might snag it up, it would go nicely with the .22 Long rifle that is hanging above my parents mantle.

That looks to be in pretty good shape.I myself have fired alot of these old Pockets. No you do not want to put mini mags through them. But CCI CBs in long and short are just fine, as long as the condition of the revolver is OK.

Would you consider shipping?
