Please click the image for a larger version
Allen & Wheelock center hammer 44 caliber percussion "Army" model revolver with unique triggerguard loading lever. Serial number 440. Very heavy gun with 7-1/2" barrel. No maker or patent markings that we observe. Metal parts are well worn, may have been cleaned long ago, with some scattered worn pits and a medium gray-brown coloration overall. Hammer seems to exhibit some old repairs. Wood grips are old replacements that fit well,showing average wear from use and a couple minor handling marks. Works reliably if pointed down, but does not always revolve if held level, likely a hand spring. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
