FOREHAND ARMS Co. .38 S&W TOP BREAK C&R Revolver
Nice Double Action C&R Self Defense Revolver!
Here we present a Forehand Arms Company Top Break Double Action Revolver in .38 S&W, made circa 1900 during the production run of 1890 through 1902. This revolver was manufactured in the early 20th century in Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1871 Sullivan Forehand and Henry C. Wadsworth founded Forehand & Wadsworth from the remnants of Ethan Allen & Company after the death of their father-in-law, Ethan Allen. Wadsworth sold his share of the company to Forehand in 1890 in order to retire and the company was rebranded as Forehand Arms. Sullivan Forehand and Henry C. Wadsworth were the sons-in-law of Ethan Allen, the successful firearms inventor and manufacturer from the 1830s. It would have made a convenient sidearm used for self-defense at the turn of the 20th century.
The overall condition is fair. 75% of the original nickel finish remains with some blue accent. The markings are clear. The trademarked grips are in very good shape. The bore is dark. The action is functional.
