9.5mm caliber, 6.5" rifled barrel, S/N 2018. Browned finish, hardwood stock with grooved grip. Single-shot, breech loading, needle-fire pistol with rotating chamber that loads through the top when the breech lever is lowered. Cocking system is essentially the same as that used on Dreyse's later M1841 rifle. Unmarked other than serial number. Notched rear sight behind chamber, dovetailed front sight blade.
Very good. Retains some thinning and worn brown, blending to an evenly oxidized brown patina. Mechanically functional, good bore with moderate oxidation and the rifling slightly weak near the muzzle. Stock and grip with scattered bumps and dings.
