    No rounds or spent shells were in there. In fact the handle was bent towards the barrel. Not sure how or why.

    Hmmmmm? The absence of parts could be explain it as being a junker that was damaged, stripped and thrown away, but leaving the cylinder and cylinder pin in after stripping it doesn't support that theory (or the barrel for that matter).

    It could have found its way there any time from around 1878 to the present day. Knowing the caliber or cartridge may narrow its identity a bit. Not much but a little. The degree of corrosion seems to indicate that it had been in that place for a long time.

    Maybe some old prospector found so much gold he couldn't haul it all and the pistol out too!!!

    Very interesting find you have there.
