CVA Pocket Police
« on: February 07, 2015, 05:14:41 AM »
While visiting my brother, he showed me a Connecticut Valley Arms version of the Pocket Police.  Neat little revolver, except it has a brass frame.

I looked for a makers mark and could not find one.  Anyone know who made them for CVA?

Thank you.

I have looked at a few of the brass framed ones but not seriously.  I want a steel framed model but I think DGG was the mark on at least a couple of the brass framed ones I looked at.   I don't own anything made by Armi San Paulo so I can't speak to their quality.
As I said,  I think they were DGG but I really wasn't serious about them so I was not paying close attention.

Your welcome.   Not much info but you seemed kind of desperate.

More curious than desperate.  I tried to go to Dr Davis' site but my computer considers it toxic and unvisitable.  So I had no other source to find out about that revolver.  The brass frame is not my cup of tea but it was somewhat nice looking.  I have many of the Uberti Pocket Police revolvers, just never saw a CVA.

Just yanking your chain with the desperate part.    I have also seen a couple ASM built Pocket police models on GunBroker.   Right now it seems if you want a new one Uberti is the only way to get one.   I need one but have been unable to find a steel framed one I would be willing give the asking price for. 
I always forget to check Dr. Davis' site when looking for information.   Thanks for the reminder.

I get the same message. My computer blocks me from that site now.

Today, I was able to access Dr Davis' site.  Could not find an answer but I was able to get in to the site.

I went there after you posted about it earlier.  Did not have a problem at all.  Must have been repaired by then.

There should be some kind of marking on it.  DGG under the loading lever would be Armi San Paolo/Euroarms.  An Armi San Marco could be one of a half dozen or so markings depending on manufacture date. 

Pictures of any and all markings would help.

If there is no date code, it could be a kit gun that will be harder to identify.

Fingers, it is definitely a kit gun, still in the pieces!  And rough pieces at that!  Machine marks and too much metal.  I was just curious as to the maker as there are no, zero, marks of any kind on the parts.

Then your guess is as good as mine.

I've got your answer.  According to CVA, the two manufacturers they used for the percussion pistols and kits were Pietta and Armi San Marco.  Since Pietta never made a pocket pistol; I'm fairly certain the pistol in question was made by Armi San Marco.
