663. Allen and Wheelock Sidehammer Navy Model Percussion Revolver

Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #531, .36 cal, 8'' octagon barrel with an oxidized bore showing some areas of strong rifling. The barrel, cylinder and loading lever of this standard model have toned to a dark gray patina showing some scattered pinprick pitting while the frame has been lightly cleaned to a dull gunmetal-gray patina with remnants of minor pitting throughout. The barrel address and patent marks are quite soft but mostly legible and the forest scene on the cylinder is still remarkably clear. The smooth walnut grips are stamp-numbered to the gun and remain in very good plus condition showing worn finish, a small chip at the heel of the right panel and minor handling marks. All of the serialized parts are matching and the action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lockup. Still an attractive example of these rather scarce percussion revolvers.
