WILLIAM UHLINGER POCKET REVOLVER

$395.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1030-284

These revolvers were made from 1861 to 1865 by William P. Uhlinger of Philadelphia. Most were unmarked except for the serial number because the revolver was an infringement on a Smith & Wesson patent. This particular example is marked.

Several different versions of this revolver were produced in .32, .22 and long cylinder .22. This one is the long cylinder .22 rimfire version with a 1 3/16 inch six-shot cylinder and a 3.00 inch octagon barrel. Bore is dark.

Frame is iron while barrel and cylinder were originally blued, but now all metal surfaces are dark. Right side of the barrel has a worn stamping that reads “W. P. UHLINGER / PHILA. PA.” The serial number on the grip strap and cylinder match and are numbered 559.

Squared rosewood grips are in very nice condition.

Revolver indexes properly, however the hammer does not hold at half or full cock.

This Civil War revolver displays well but will need a tiny bit of repair to work properly.  [ad]
