KOLB Model 1910 “BABY HAMMERLESS”.22 Revolver C&R
With Mother of Pearl Grips
Here we present a Kolb “BABY HAMMERLESS MODEL 1910” .22 Revolver, made circa the 1920s in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This design seems to have originated with the company Foehl & Weeks, though they probably did not have the opportunity to begin production before they went bankrupt. The Columbian Firearms Manufacturing Company, as the company was renamed, is thought to have produced the first examples. However, it was Henry Kolb, an immigrant from Germany, who was given the 1910 patents that are marked on this gun, therefore his name is most associated with it. This piece was most likely manufactured by Reginald F. Sedgley (b. 1876), an English immigrant to Philadelphia in 1894, who was a machinist, gunsmith and gun maker. He bought out Kolb in 1916.
This tiny .22 revolver features mother of pearl grips and a nickel finish. The hammer is enclosed and the trigger folds up, making it advantageous to carry and even shoot from a jacket pocket. You can imagine that, then as now, a person might want a small firearm with which to defend themselves. Tiny revolvers were the order of the day ever since Smith & Wesson introduced the single action No. 1. Double action revolvers were the next evolution as the 19th became the 20th Century. The Baby Hammerless was small and light, thus easy to carry, and 6 shots of .22 is far better than nothing in most situations.
This one has a neat little cylinder that is removeable from the right side of the frame. Simply pull forward on the cylinder pin and out comes the cylinder, complete with a plunger style star extractor!
Overall condition is very good. The nickel finish is about 90%. The markings are legible. The mother of pearl grips are in decent shape with the right panel having been repaired. The bore is in good condition. The action is not currently fully functional. A pull of the trigger does not yield a solid strike on the firing pin and the cylinder does not fully index. A little work on this pretty little gun may go a long way!
