Venditti cartridge, photo needed for new book


#1

A friend of mine, Dr. Ed Lewis, is close to completing a book on the Volcanic Pistol. He has a chapter on the similar Italian Venditti pistol, and he would like to have a photograph of a cartridge for the Venditti. It is assumed the early version of the Venditti cartridge would be similar to the Volcanic, but we don’t know. In one of Venditti’s later patents (15 March 1877), he shows conversion to a metallic cartridge. So, there may be at least two different cartridges. We would be pleased to hear from anyone who has information on cartridges for the Venditti pistol. MichaelCarrick@me.com, Salem, Oregon, 1-800-394-7797
