    Anyone know anything about this gun? I could only find a few things about it online. One was a place selling them I believe and the other was a sports illustrated article from 1977. According to the article, they sold for $40-60.

    My dad has had this gun for as long as I can remember. But I dont know anything about it. It does have papers with it, and it comes in a wood case. However, it has been sitting for quite some time, and has some pretty bad rust on it. I was wondering if it would be worth it to clean up.

    it actually looks exactly like that.

    but the hammer is rusted pretty badly.

    you could disassemble it, place it in a GLASS container w/ GLASS lid = filled with vinegar ( pistol is completely submerged ) , that should remove the rust

    WHAT YOU HAVE IS AS THE ARTICAL YOU MENTIONED . THE GUN WAS MADE BY CLASSIC ARMS LTD. OF PALMER MASS OIT WAS SOLD AS A KIT OR COMPLEATED FOR THE PRICE YOU MENTIONED .I BOUGHT MINE IN THE LATE 70S THEY FIRE A 36 CAL. ROUND BALL ITS A SMOOTH BOREAND WAS AVALIBLE WITH WOOD OR PEARLITE THE WOOD GRIPS WERE WALNUT. I CANT BELIVE IT COULD BE WORTH MUCH BUT CLEANED UP THEY LOOK PRETTY GOOD. IT WAS INTENDED TO USE A #11 CAP AND 12 GRAINS OF FFFG BLACK POWDERAND .345 LEAD BALL WITH A .015 OILED PATCH.
    AS FAR AS CLEANING IT ITS THE SAME AS ANY GUN HOPPES #9 AND THE RUSTED HAMMERS IM SURE IF THERE FINISHED ITS BEYOND HELP. JUST CLEAN THEM UP WITH A FINE WIRE WHEEL AND REBLUE I HAVE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS IF YOU WANT TO GO TO ALL THE TROUBLE I WILL COPPY IT AND SEND YOU A COPPY THESE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDE INST. FOR COMPLEATING THE KIT.
    BECAUSE THESE GUNS WERE KITS IT MAY LOOK A LOT DIFFERENT DEPENDING ON WHO BUILT IT.
    YOU MIGHT ALSO CONTACT DIXIE GUNWORKS BECAUSE THEY SOLD HUNDRED OF THEN.
    HOPE THIS HELPS. MINE NEEDS HAMMER SPRINGS AND SO FAR I HAVE HAD NO LUCK REPRODUCEING THEM.:sad: ps it was called the deadly deuce not double.
