Allen Wheelock 32 rimfire center hammer single shot pistol. Flayderman page 67 item 5A 083.  This is the last variation NOT having hte lip over the barrel. Only between 500 to a 1000 made and this spread out over 6 variations.  So probably only  around a 100 made for this one.

It has the early Ethan Allen markings and the 1865 patents.  The barrel is 5 inch and half orund/ half octagon and shows some moderate spots in the bore. Medium grey on the outside. Most of these had straight barrels, making this one rare.

The brass frame has still 98 % of the original silver.  The original grips are super, showing 98 % of the varnish and both have serial 120 stamped on the insde, smae number as to be found on the other parts of this single shot.

Good shooter and 100 % correct.
