Had my second Moderna vaccine shot yesterday and feeling kind of tough today. The first one made me sick also. Looks like it's been a couple of months since anyone posted here so this might get something started. Thought I would share pictures of my Whitney 4 digit serial .36 caliber revolver made in 1862. All matching serial numbers with a pretty good action. I love to look at old Civil War Era revolvers. So if anyone else has them, I would love to see them.

No. I would say the bore is a 5 or maybe 6 on the 10 point scale, with still some rifling left but it is very dark.. Although the action is good and the cylinder locks up in time, there is a lot of lateral play in the cylinder inside the frame. Even if it were in excellent shape, I wouldn't risk an accident that could destroy the gun. A lot of people like to shoot original black powder revolvers that are 160 years old, but not me. Thanks for your interest.
