Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

Description:We haven't had one of these uncommon projectiles in a while. This is a Parrott flat top bolt for the earlier 2.9" Parrott rifle. The 1993 D&G book only shows the brass saboted version of this bolt.

The iron is quite good on this round There are a few small spots where there are shallow pits but most is very light ground action. There is one very small chip above the sabot as can be seen in the picture. The sabot is in very good shape. The vent hole sprue is clearly visible on the nose.

The projectile is a good one and displays very well. If in better shape it would be much more pricey.

Projectile is inert, cleaned and coated.
