Forehand & Wadsworth Old Model Army Single Action Revolver.
No Licence Required.
Forehand & Wadsworth Old Model Army Single Action Revolver. 1st year production, very low serial number, made in the obsolete calibre 44 Smith & Wesson American.
Sullivan Forehand and Henry Wadsworth each married one of Ethan Allen's daughters and were part of E. Allen & Co. until they restructured the business as Forehand & Wadsworth upon Ethan Allen's passing in 1871. As with Allen's firearms, their guns were high quality weapons. These Old Model Army revolvers were manufactured in the mid 1870s and it is estimated that less than 1,000 were made.
The 44 Smith & Wesson American can be found listed on page 8 of the Home Office Guide, this calibre is NOT one of the 7 calibres recently outlawed in the United Kingdom., it will NOT chamber any modern round, and it will certainly NOT chamber the recently outlawed 44 Russian.
No licence is required to own this historical antique.
