JARRE Bte. SGDG
JARREBte. SGDG, Støckel: "J. Jarre received 1859-1862 various patents for harmonica pistols, 28 bd Poissonnière, Paris." A very rare eight-shot-harmonica-magazine-pistol. Unlike the other variations this has a 4½" barrel with inscribed name. The serial # 195 is under the barrel and on the harmonica. The caliber 9mm pin fire. As fashionable at the time the iron parts kept in the white. Blackstrap, barrel lug and butt cap engraved, plain ebony grips. The extended trigger is to move the harmonica and cock the hammer. The pistol is in overall fine condition. It is rare because it is the first 8-shot I encountered $12,500.
