FINE Antique FOREHAND & WADSWORTH Side Hammer REV
HOLSTERED 1870s 7-Shot .22 Rimfire Pocket Revolver
Here we present an antique holstered Forehand & Wadsworth Side Hammer Revolver Pocket Revolver, manufactured circa the 1870s. This revolver features 7 shots of .22 Rimfire and would have been an alternative to the Colt Open Top or the S&W No. 1 revolvers of the time. This design goes back to Ethan Allen’s original design and was manufactured by Allen’s sons-in-law: Sullivan Forehand & Henry C. Wadsworth.
This one features a very neat old belt holster for this little gun. This holster is old and not marked. The pebble grained leather is still supple. Construction is both riveted and stitched. One of the most distinctive features of this revolver is the side-mounted hammer. The left side of the barrel is marked “FOREHAND & WADSWORTH WORCESTER, MASS./PATS SEPT. 24 & OCT.22.1861”.
The overall condition is very fine. The original blue finish is 80%. Vibrant case colors remain. The markings are clear. The rosewood grips have virtually all of the original varnish. The bore is clean with sharp rifling. The action is excellent.
