Called Bootleg pistol as the underhammer made for an unencumbered design which made it convenient to carry in the top of a bootleg with the barrel concealed in the boot. Could also habe been carried in a belt or pocket. However the term or name bootleg has become synonymous with underhammer pistols. The underhammer also said to have aided in making a quick draw easy. The era of the popularity of the underhammer pistol was from ca. 1835 to ca. 1860. Mostly made in the New England States with Massachusetts & Connecticut makers producing the largest numbers. Sometimes used as a supplemental weapon to another pistol a revolver or rifle etc.
