    A six inch, six shot, pocket model with the 2 line Hartford barrel address is the rarest of the rare. There were only around 1850 of them made.

    Very nice!! I'm not super knowledgable with the old BP guns, so I had to go pull mine from the safe and compare. I knew mine was a 6 shot 6" but didn't know about the one vs two line address. Sadly, mine is one long line so not as rare but I still enjoy it.

    Do you plan on shooting it some?

    I have a replica BP pistol if I get the desire to shoot. I haven't done so in years, though.
