RARE S&W Model of 1891 .22 LR SINGLE SHOT Pistol
1 of 862 Top Break S&W First Model Target Pistol
Here we present a Smith & Wesson Model of 1891 (First Model) Single Shot .22 LR Rimfire Single Action Pistol, made circa 1900 in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Smith & Wesson Model 1891s were produced from 1893 to 1905 with a total production in all calibers of only 1251. This unusual pistol combines the frame of a .38 single action 3rd Model with a single shot barrel. This pistol is a top break and functions exactly as a revolver does. The top of the barrel rib is marked with the two-line, two block address/patent dates with "MODEL OF 91" in the center. The left side is marked "22 LONG RIFLE CTG" and the right side of the frame has the S&W Trademark logo. It has a blade front and notch rear sights, blue finish with casehardened hammer, trigger and trigger guard and fitted with hardwood walnut grips.
The overall condition is very good. The blue finish has turned gray with age. The markings are clear. The numbers match on the barrel and frame. The grips match each other. The bore is in very good shape, clean with strong rifling. The action remains strong.
