Colt Camp Perry Model

Something showed up at a local gun store that I had never seen before. A Colt Camp Perry Model. It’s chambered in 22LR. And is a single-shot pistol. Not a revolver. The entire “cylinder” is actually a flat chamber block that hinges out from the frame for single loading.

Looks can be deceiving. This angle shows how flat the pistol is.

Very different. Pretty neat. If I was a an avid 22 shooter, this might be something that would interest me. But at the prices they command, I am not a buyer. A quick internet search shows that current estimates are that only 2500 were ever produced.

This particular example comes with a custom leather holster and old box of shells. Likely this will end up in a high-end collection.
