WHITNEY 2ND MODEL 2ND TYPE .36 CAL NAVY REVOLVER (1861)
Original Civil War Whitney 2nd Model 2nd Type .36 cal Revolver with a very desirable production date of 1861. The walnut grips are in good shape with normal wear from service. The full length barrel has the E Whitney N Haven Barrel Address and its original brass bead sight. The mechanics are functional with loose action. (The cylinder gets hung ever 6th shot). Has the original early style loading lever and closure tab. Marked with SN# 4557 as well as under the barrel A 4557. Jeb Stuart carried a Whitney Revolver when he was mortally wounded and it was #3110. The original wing nut screw is MIA and has been replaced with a small wedge. A great gun for the money that was sure to have seen lots of action. Please see all photos.
