Very Rare Whitneyville Model 1 in .30 Rimfire
The Model 1 was known by collectors only as a .22 calibre pocket revolver although Whitney advertised a .30 calibre variant back in the 1870’s. Nobody had seen one though until recently. These are so rare, in fact, the RCMP Technical Division had to create a new FRT (Firearms Reference Table) just for this variant! It took me three months to convince them that this was a rare variation on the usual Model 1. I managed to pick up six of them all from one collection. This one has nice ivory grips free of chips and only a few small stress fractures around the grip screw. About 75% original nickel plating with some finish loss on the barrel and cylinder. Mechanically tight and accurately indexing, clean bore and crisp rifling. Rated very good overall. SN# 11
