Kolb-Sedgley “BABY HAMMERLESS” .22 Short Revolver
Made Circa 1920s in PHILADELPHIA!
Here we present a Sedgley “BABY HAMMERLESS MODEL 1918” .22 Revolver in a vintage purse, 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.
The overall condition is fine. 98% of the original nickel finish remains with clear markings. Trademarked grips are in great shape. Clean bore. Excellent action.
