Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Allen and Wheelock -- 1845 Medium Frame Pepperbox, 6-Shot .31 Percussion

Gun: This gun is an Allen and Wheelock medium sized double action top hammer pepperbox. This gun has a 4”, six shot barrel for a .31 caliber percussion balle. The barrel is marked Allen & Wheelock. The hammer is marked “Allen’s patent 1845”. The serial number, which is found on both grip panels and the grip frame is “60”, the main spring is stamped with a “72”, and the trigger guard a “62”. These are likely assembly or lot numbers. There is a flower and leaf pattern engraving on the nipple shield. The gun is parts complete, parts original and finish original. The action functions well, the cylinder turns and the hammer falls correctly with the cycle of the trigger. The grips are wood. This model of Allen was produced after Allen moved from Norwich to Worcester and was produced from 1847 to 1865; it is the “Fluted Barrel with engraved Nipple Shield” model. The engraved shields were done by hand.

Condition: Overall, this pistol is in very good condition. While no finish is retained on the pistol, the metal is primarily smooth. There is some scattered erosion on the barrel and the receiver has patina but no mentionable deep pitting. The markings are clear. The springs are strong and the screw heads are all serviceable. The nipples are pretty well flattened from dry firing. The grips look to retain their original finish and are free of cracks or severe mars. The wood to metal fit is very good.

This is a very nice example of a classic civil war era pepperbox.
