Hello all,
I'm a newbie on the forums here .Hope to learn a lot about guns I have collected. Seems like a very helpful group of members here !
I am hoping to find out who the manufactured my .32 Caliber
Duckfoot Pistol.
Look forward to hearing some feedback.

Thanks,

Most likely Classic Arms.

I think Dixie sold one for a while, maybe they still do.

DGW still sells kits from Classic Arms. I don't think the complete guns have been available for years. Course I've been wrong before.:D

Thanks to all who replied to my original post!
I have found out quite a bit more on the History of this pistol
in the past month.
Sent it in to a antique weapons appraisal service.
Turns out that it is a .36 caliber ,and the serial number and
Model number I.D. this weapon as a "genuine" antique.
The appraisal Service did a good amount of research
on this 3 barrel ,single percussion cap ignition.
The Current value was between $2,800 to $3200.00
:) I was pretty surprised with their findings!! :D

That's nice. You don't see many original Duckfoot pistols with a serial number (and a traceable one at that.:)

Thanks for the reply to my Duckfoot post!
Do you mind if I ask your opinion on this?
I'm fairly new at collecting,but really enjoy the
old black powder weapons!
my question is---should I keep this Duckfoot as an investment?
Or sell now and buy 3 or 4 other unusual pistols?
Thanks for any help ! :)

In my OHO, a 3200 dollar duckfoot pistol with a serial number and a model number, sell that sucker to a sucker and run.:)

So this "original" duck foot has a model number(extremely unlikely)and a serial number(doubtful)but no makers name and your appraisal service can put a value on it but can't identify the maker? Tell it to somebody else. :rolleyes:

Can you tell us what appraisal service you used, and how much they charged? They might be willing to buy it, of course for less than the appraised value.
