Manhattan Shotgun Hammer Single Shot Pistol - 1
Manhattan probably manufactured between 300 and 500 Shotgun Hammer
Single Shot pistols, thus making the pistols among the scarcest of Manhattan
firearms. Engraved on the octagonal flats of the barrel are the wording,
MANHATTAN F.A. MFG. CO. on one flat, on another flat NEW YORK, and on a
third
CAST STEEL. The serial number is on a fourth flat.
The half cylindrical and half octagonal barrel is slightly under 6 inches in length.
It has a serial number that matches a serial number that is stamped on the
trigger assembly.
