Maker: Brooklyn Firearms Co.
This gun is boxed in its original greed cardboard box with 100% of the label intact and most importantly the complete instruction sheet is included. I have never seen another of these instruction sheets. Made by Brooklyn Firearms Co. in Brooklyn NY, these were another attempt to circumvent the Rollin White bore through patent controlled by Smith & Wesson. Made in Brooklyn NY, wouldn't that make Hillary and Mayor Bloomburg pleased to know guns were made in Brooklyn ??. The Silver plated brass frame is scroll engraved with a lovely patina on it. The barrel is blued and the finish has thinned to brown in some areas, the cylinder retains 90% of the original blue. The action is tight and crisp. There is a crack in the right grip from the screw to the bottom, this appears to be a stress crack, because there are no bruises indicating any damage. Serial number 2482 on the bottom of the frame. This gun is absolutely original and with the cardboard box and instruction sheet, this is one of the best Slocum's available, and would go well in any collection of New York City made guns, with the original box and instruction sheet, which is also very scarce.
