WHITNEY 2ND MODEL 3RD TYPE .31 CAL POCKET REVOLVER 1862
Original Civil War Whitney 2nd Model 3rd Type .31 cal Pocket Revolver SN#10948 which is a very desirable early war 1862 production. This example has the ball loading lever which is a little unusual after the 6,000 range. Has a really nice overall pleasing patina. The walnut grips are in good shape with normal wear from service and really cool period checkering. Has a 3" barrel with partial E. Whitney / N Haven Barrel Address and bead sight. Very nice rifling remains. The mechanics are not currently functional but I don't think its anything too serious. I believe its a weak main spring. With just a little pressure on the cylinder pointing down it will work properly. Great overall example that will display great at a really good price. Everything at the shows is sky high!
