Brooklyn Arms .32 Caliber Slocum

Manufactured in Brooklyn, N.Y., by the Brooklyn Arms Company, the Slocum revolver was a unique design with individual cylinder chamber sections in the form of sliding tubes. Built this way to evade the Smith & Wesson-held Rollin White patent on bored-through cylinders, the .32-caliber Slocum was a popular Civil War-era choice for personal protection, and more than 10,000 were produced.

While most of the general production guns had some engraving, this ivory-stocked Slocum revolver features full coverage scrollwork on the frame, barrel and cylinder. The chambers even include vignettes of various game animals, including a fierce reptile on one cylinder section.
