Wesson single shot pistols, formerly made by Frank Wesson, at Worcester, Mass., are operated as follows: The hammer is slightly raised and held by a pin pressed in from the side; a projecting stud is pressed at the bottom of the receiver, and the barrel turned over to one side, the shell of the exploded cartridge thrown out by the extractor. These arms are well balanced, fitted with good sights of various styles and are accurate. They are much used by marksmen at this time, although not generally on the market.
