Mrs. Hearst had a ranch in the Mexican state of Chihuahua and believing her cattle were being stolen, hired Mr. More as the ranch foreman to stop the rustlers. He apparently purchased this Colt in El Paso and after suffering illness, trials and travails, sometime in the early 1900’s, after 1904, he left the ranch and returned to New York where he and his two brothers formed a cattle auction company. He lived to age 90 when he had suffered a second stroke and was partially paralyzed. He took his own life with this very revolver.

The buttstock has straight grip with crescent buttplate with faceted tang and a long toeplate. It is a removable butt stock by means of a small trap in the buttplate which exposes a square key shank which, when unscrewed, allows the stock to be removed. The stock is made in two halves and apparently contains the main spring for the striker. The receiver is a miniature of the usual open side with the entire right side open to expose two finger holes.

The bolt is then manually moved forward, the lever closed and then fired in the normal manner.

HOLDEN PATENT, SEPT. 1ST. 1862” engraved on the left side and has a 2-1/2” x 1/4” long ebony inlay. The receiver, lever and buttplate are silver-plated.

RARE AND UNUSUAL BREECH LOADING RIFLE. Cal. 32 RF. SN 191. Unique little rifle, was built on a Holden open side rifle frame. This rifle has 23-7/8” oct bbl with five lands and grooves conventional rifling with left hand twist. It has a Lyman combination front sight and a 2-position ladder rear sight typical of Holden. It has almost the identical shape and contour of his better-known open side rifle with uncheckered wood, a heavy splinter forearm and straight stock with crescent steel buttplate and faceted tang. The top rear section of the receiver is mounted with a unique tang sight built of iron and horn. The hammer has an offset ear to accommodate this sight. The unique action functions when the hammer is at half cock and the iron and horn bolt on the right side is pulled to the rear. This causes the nickel-plated brass breechblock to pivot to the left exposing the chamber, reminiscent of a Martini breechloader laid on its side. If the bolt is pulled further to the rear it actuates the extractor. The lever holding the trigger has been permanently screwed to the bottom of the frame. The original barrel takedown pin has been replaced by two screws and the original hole plugged. The bottom of the receiver has two holes for which there does not appear to be a purpose. Accompanied by a copy of a brief biography of C.B. Holden. CONDITION: Very fine. Bbl retains 93-95% strong original blue turning plum in some areas with light edge wears. Receiver retains 25-30% original blue with the balance dark patina. Wood is sound with numerous small nicks and scratches and a few bruises on the butt stock and retains most of its original varnish. Hammer is not stable at half cock, otherwise the mechanics are fine and it has a brilliant shiny bore. 4-52513 JR639 (4,000-7,000)
