When you hear the word “pepper box” you typically think of something that grinds pepper corns for your fine dining experience. When The Gun Room Inc. says “pepper box” we are talking about the precursor to the modern revolver. When the pepper box first came out it gave an instant tactical advantage over the single shot firearms that were in use at the time. In fact it could be said the pepper box was the first tactical pistol ever in that it could shoot rounds just as fast as you could cock it and pull the trigger.
The pepper box resembles the famous gatling gun that would come out later with it’s multi-barreled design and it’s ability to shed lead.
The Gun Room Inc. is fortunate to know some of the best collectors on the planet and it’s this relationship with their customers that brings in some of the most collectible firearms you’ve never heard of. Enter the Blissett Pepper Box!
This pistol is one of the finest we’ve seen at any auction anywhere period.
Isaac and John Blissett were gun makers, jewelers, and engravers for the Crown and the Duke of Sussex until around 1850.
