Nepperhan Fire Arms Company 2
This is an example of the most widely produced Nepperhan; approximately 3500
were made with the Nepperhan name on two lines. This pistol still shows
evidence of the bluing on the cylinder and the barrel. The grips were made in
two pieces of walnut. The location of the screws on the Nepperhan sideplate is
quite different than the placement on the Manhattan or Bacon .36 caliber pistols.
Notice the serial number conspicuously imprinted on the bottom
outside surface on the wedge. Other manufacturers placed the
serial number on a surface normally concealed when the wedge is in
place. To see those serial numbers, the wedge must be removed.
