The Whitneyville Armoury USA was founded 1798 in New Haven Connecticut by Eli Whitney. Whitney produced approx. 33,000 revolvers to compete with Colt & Remington patent revolvers. Many were purchased by the Union Army & Navy and saw service in the American Civil War. In 1888, the Whitney Arms Company was sold to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. This is a nice original 7 ½” octagonal barrel Eli Whitney Remington Navy type .36" Calibre, 6 shot percussion revolver with drop down loading lever. The frame is similar in appearance to Remington Army & Navy Revolvers. The lever is stamped with number that looks like ‘5380’ and has an ‘L’ factory inspection mark. The bore has just light staining consistent with age and well defined rifling. The metal work even aged patina throughout. The top of the barrel has visible but faint ‘E.Whitney N.Haven’ address. The pistol has a small brass post fore sight, notched hammer and grooved frame rear sight. It has a brass trigger guard. Its original Walnut grips have just light bumps and bruises consistent with age and use. The pistol's single action cocking and firing mechanism is crisp. The price includes UK delivery. NB. As an antique percussion revolver no licence is required to own this weapon in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 20709:6
