Video—I Have This Old Gun: Colt Camp Perry Pistol

The Colt Camp Perry pistol, named for the legendary National Matches venue, was manufactured between 1920 and 1941. It was created by replacing the 6-shot cylinder of the .22 Officer's Model Target with flat "cylinder" containing one .22 cal. chamber, which was hinged in the manor of a conventional cylinder, although movement was restricted so that the chamber was only just accessible to load the cartridge.

Although the pistol never really caught on, Colt Camp Perry's are now considered very valuable among collectors; Serial No. 1 was auctioned in December 2012 at an estimated value of $95,000. Learn more about this unique pistol in this “I Have This Old Gun” segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV. For more videos like this, please visit americanrifleman.org/artv.
