    Colt Camp Perry

    http://www.nramuseum.org/the-museum...olt-camp-perry-single-shot-target-pistol.aspx

    Approximately 2,500 Camp Perry pistols were marketed by Colt between the years 1920 and 1941. This unusual model was created by replacing the 6-shot cylinder of the .22 Officer's Model Target with flat "cylinder" containing one .22 cal. chamber. Camp Perry, Ohio is the site of the annual National Rifle and Pistol Matches.

    Very interesting, but it leaves me wondering what the intended purpose of of it was.

    I don't know either.....but, the lack of alignment issues between cylinder chambers and bore, and no forcing cone or cylinder gap, will mean it will be more accurate than a revolver.

    To make very very small groups at longish distances whilst held single handed... i.e., Bullseye Competition.

    The fluting on the cylin... on the rectanglder is an interesting illusion.


    Didn't Smith make a single shot but with no swing out whatchamacallit? Not sure if it was the same time period.

    Very cool! I'd love to see that idea expanded to larger rounds, similar to the Thompson Contender. Good lord, I want one in .45-70!
