This museum-quality, non-firing, metal and wood replica of a Volcanic repeating pistol - which featured a rapid rate of fire and waterproof "Rocket-ball" ammunition - includes an early (1865) cartridge firing system and a working spring trigger just like the original's! With an antique brass finish and wood grips, it measures 15" long.
Directed by Lew Ayres, who starred in 1930's All Quiet on the Western Front, this 1936 film dramatizes the building of the ironclad warships USS Monitor by the U.S. Navy and CSS Virginia (which was constructed using the remains of the scuttled USS Merrimack) by the Confederate States Navy and their epic Civil War clash in the 1862 Battle of Hampton Roads - the first-ever battle fought between two ironclads. B&W, 1 hr. 12 min.
