Here we present an antique Chicago Firearms Co. Protector Palm Pistol, made circa 1893. This was a very interesting design that dared to venture away from the conventional style of handgun in that day. It was made to be very simple and small enough to fit inside the pocket and the hand, with only part of the barrel exposed. It was invented in France in 1882 by Jacques Trubiaux, and was subsequently made in the United States by several different companies, all in relatively small batches. Turbiaux’s original “Turbiaux Le Protector” was a 10 shot, .22 centerfire. Peter Finnegan took up the mantle in 1892 and set up his Chicago Fire Arms Co. He contracted through the Ames Company to make 15,000 of them for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. Very few were made by that time and Finnegan sued the Ames Company. Ames kept making the pistols, even during the lawsuit, and in the end only about 12,800 were made. This gun features a 7-shot, rotating, turret-style magazine housed inside the disc-shaped frame. A cover is removable on one side to load and unload. Its palm-sized, squeeze trigger and lack of sights demonstrates how this was an up close and personal weapon, though it does have a rifled barrel. One could point and fire at distance, but could also punch their opponent with it, the palm of the hand slamming the squeeze trigger home with the impact. All in all, a truly unique design of the time. Nickel finish has some scratches and wear per its age please view picture for condition.
