VERY SCARCE Allen & Wheelock SIDEHAMMER Revolver Algonquian Native American
5-Panel Cylinder Scene and Walnut Grips!
Here we present an antique Allen & Wheelock Sidehammer First Issue Revolver, made circa 1858 in Worcester, Massachusetts. There we 8 different variants of this revolver made between 1858 and 1865, and only 1,500 are thought to have been made total, making this a very scarce little revolver. The most immediately eye-catching feature on this revolver is the side-mounted hammer on the right side of the gun. The next is the 5-panel cylinder scene featuring a version of the Massachusetts State seal with a Algonquian Native American and a star, a collection of cannon and other small arms, a horseman charging with a spear raised overhead, crossed rifles and handguns, and ship with a fort in the background.
The left side of the barrel is marked “ALLEN & WHEELOCK. WORCESTER. MASS./ALLEN’S PAT’S. SEPT. 7. NOV. 9. 1858.”
The overall condition is Good. The action is strong on this little guy. The bore is in good condition with clear rifling. The cylinder, cylinder arbor pin, and barrel all share “65” as the matching serial number. The markings on the barrel are legible; the engravings on the cylinder clear. Here is a great example of Ethan Allen’s 7-shot sidehammer revolver for your collection!
