Item No.: 9646 Price : $1,250.00
Item : ORIGINAL MERWIN HULBERT & CO. 2ND MODEL FRONTIER ARMY OPEN TOP .44 REVOLVER W/ HOLSTER
Description :
This is an original, Merwin Hulbert & Co. Second Model Frontier Army Open Top Revolver chambered for the .44 Merwin Hulbert cartridge. Merwin Hulbert & Co. manufactured high qualty revolvers from 1874 until 1891. They were extremely well made to very close tolerance and were a serious competitor to the Colt, Smith & Wesson, and Remington revolvers of the time. The revolvers employed a unique twist open mechanism. You push the latch on the bottom of the frame, twist the barrel and cylinder clockwise and pull them forward. This revolver is in fair condition, having seen some significant use. There is no finish remaining on the gun. It has a steel patina with a healthy sprinkling of pitting. Heavier pitted areas have a brown patina.No markings remain but the serial number. The bore is poor with fine pitting and little rifling remaining. The action works with just a full cock position remaining. The twist opening mechanism works well. The barrels on these guns were originally 7". This gun has a 5 1/2" barrel and was probably shortened in some frontier gun shop. It is well done. The hard rubber grips are in surprisingly fine condition with no chips or cracks. There is a replaced screw on the sideplate. Included is a period leather holster made of thin leather. The flap closes with a snap. There is an embossed floral design on the flap. The edges are nicely laced. This a great old cowboy gun that has seen a lot of use. Stock no. 26312
