Mid 1800's Smith & Wesson Transitional Model 1 1/2 'Tip Up' Barrel .32 Rim Fire 5 Shot Nickel Plated Revolver With Octagonal Barrel . Sn 13950 - 13950
The American Civil War created a large demand for handguns of all shapes and sizes. S&W had been successfully producing their Model 1 Pocket Revolvers and Their Model 2 belt revolver. There was however a demand for a pocket revolver in a larger calibre than their Model 1 .22 Calibre pistol. To cater for the demand S&W introduced their Model 1 1/2. This pistol referred to as the 'Transitional Model 1/2' was made using some parts taken from the production line of their Model 1 and Model 2 revolvers. This is an excellent original example of the Smith & Wesson Transitional Model 1 1/2 'Tip Up' Barrel 5 shot Revolver in .32 Rim Fire Calibre. It retains much of its original nickel finish and has undamaged original dark wood grips. The butt strap is stamped with serial number '7304'. It has a shrouded trigger and the top of its 3 ½” octagonal barrel with top rib is marked with the S&W Springfield address and 1855-1859 Patent detail. The pistol measures 8 ½” overall and its single action firing mechanism works perfectly. Price for this excellent pistol includes UK delivery.
