Rare Allen and Wheelock Sidehammer Revolver
Rare Allen & Wheelock revolver from about 1860. Only about 1000 were made between 1859 and 1862. This gun is functional and clean with an even gray patina and moderate surface pitting. The bore is dull but the rifling is sharp. The grips are free of cracks and chips, and retain about 50% original varnish. The metal retains none of the original finish and the cylinder scene is eroded. Moderate pitting around the muzzle and the side of the barrel. Crisp single action, properly indexing cylinder. The patent address on the barrel lug is legible. SN# 441. Good to very good condition overall.
