Weapon meas. approx. 7.00 inches long. It has a brass frame with a seven shot fluted cylinder and an octagonal 3.25 inch barrel with a good bore.

Barrel retains 100% of its original blue and is strongly marked on top with “WHITNEYVILLE ARMORY CT. U.S.A.” Ejector and cylinder also retain 100% of their original blue.

Bird head rosewood grips show only light wear. Bottom of grip bears serial # 17545.

Action will hold at full cock but not at half. Action is a bit stiff. Hammer is finished bright and does show some light surface rust.

All screws have blued heads and they show little to no wear.

This is an attractive little gun that will look great in any display.    [ad]
