NO RESERVE!! The Whitney Wolverine was an advanced, "space-aged", light-weight aluminum, semi-automatic, .22 LR calibre pistol created in 1955. It had a 10 round magazine, and weighed only 1.3 lbs. The Wolverine was engineered by Robert Hillberg, who learned about aluminum during WWII while working with aircraft guns and later became research engineer for High Standard Gun Company. Only 13,000 of these pistols were manufactured. The frames were cast by Alcoa. The pistol was named "Wolverine" in honor of Mr. Hillberg's favorite football team, the University of Michigan Wolverines. A victim of poor marketing, the Whitney Wolverine was way ahead of its time with its very unique space-age design.
This pistol is in excellent overall condition. The original finish rates 95-97% with some handling marks only. When received, the rear sight was missing but an original replacement was found and has since been installed (see updated pics). The mechanics appear to be in good working order and the bore is excellent. A neat looking pistol that feels good in your hand too. Buyer pays $20.00 shipping. Your C&R License is acceptable for transfer if permitted in your area.
SORRY, BUT I CANNOT END ANY
