Antique Smith & Wesson model 1, 3rd variant revolver. Excellent overall condition.
Action works correctly and is tight and could be shot if one wanted to experience history from 150 years ago. These however used the 22 short black-powder cartridges and modern 22 shorts are generally not recommended for use in these.
Generous amount of bluing still present in protected areas. Lock up of cylinder is good. Grips are very nice rosewood with no chips or cracks. These were very popular back in the day and are accurate across card table ranges.
Barrel measures 3-1/8 inches in length, overall length of the revolver is approximately 6-3/4 inches. Barrel is decent with good rifling. 7 shot cylinder is nice and clean with good bores.
Serial numbers are all matching (95920) and dates this from approximately 1869 – 1870. These were carried by gamblers and those desiring a small “hide out” protection piece.
An excellent condition early Rolin White patent Smith, ideal for a collection and an old west piece of history!
Reasonable offers will be seriously considered.
