Winter is coming and here is the winter restoration project you have been looking for. This is a 2nd MODEL, WHITNEY, 36 caliber percussion revolver. This is one of about 33000 produced. This model was very popular on both sides during the CIVIL WAR and many were used as private purchases. This is an earlier production gun, serial number 5088. It does not appear to have any US markings, but it does appear to me matching from what I can see. Obviously it is in need of restoration. It needs a trigger guard, a trigger, a mainspring, a hand and part of the loading lever, plus a couple of screws. The gun recently came out of an estate and obviously needs a good soaking and cleaning. I know that DIXIE lists many of the small parts in their catalog. The metal surfaces are freckled but there is some original finish showing through. This should not be a hard restoration, or if you need parts, there is a wealth of original parts here. This one is selling in AS IS condition, what yoiu see is what you get and there is NO RESERVE and NO RETURNS. This is an ANTIQUE so NO FFL is required. Please include $20 shipping.
