Description

The Whitneyville Armory was founded by Eli Whitney Sr. in 1798 and made “good and serviceable arms” (as they described them) for both the military as well as the civilian market for 90 years. Whitney’s son and grandson Eli Jr. were instrumental in the switch to the lucrative civilian and sporting market, but even this did not protect them from bankrupcy in the end. The firm was dissolved in 1888, and its assets bought up by Winchester. The Model 1 1/2 is a finely made, quality pocket revolver chambered for the .32 long rim fire cartridge. It has a brass frame and steel barrel and cylinder. It is a single-action, spur-trigger gun with birds head grips. This specimen is in very fine condition, with most of the nickel plating intact on the barrel and cylinder. The brass frame has about 25% nickel remaining. The grips are very fine, without cracks and only a tiny chip missing on the bottom of one side. The action is crisp, and indexing is accurate. 2 1/2 inch barrel, SN 3007B, rated very fine overall.
