A very nice condition on this 2nd Model Whitney Navy revolver, 6 shot, .36 Cal with 7 5/8" oct. barrel. This model was a heavier constructed weapon than the 1st model Whitney made. This model had a few other improvements such as the safety notches on the cylinder, wing nut holding the cylinder rod. The cylinder had engraving of lion, shield, navy scene, American Eagle & Whitneyville shield. this example is in very good condition with all matching serial nos. 6959   on bottom of barrel, back of cylinder, inside both wood grips, bottom of frame under triggerguard & on loading lever & rod. Top of barrel marked with E. Whitney  N.Haven which has wear. metal nice & smooth with some areas of original finish intact & even a little of the case hardening intact on loading lever. The original pin front sight intact. Cylinder still has quite a bit of the scenes intact but are light. You can still see some of the American Eagle, the lion & Shield with coat of arms & a little of the Whtneyville shield. The action is very good on this Whitney navy revolver. The two piece good grips are in good used condition & on the right side at the toe has a hit place & is period & goes along with on the triggerguard their is a period hit which could have been a sword. These both line up together as if something hit them both. The brass triggerguard has a geat mellow patina. This Whitney revolver serial no. puts it coming out of the factory in 1861.  These revolvers were used by both North & South during the war.  Confederate Gen. Jeb Stuart used one of these & there are pictures of soldiers on both sides taken with the very reliable & popular Whitney Navy Revolver. This is a really nice, all original, example.
