Martially Marked Pettengill Revolver

.44 caliber, 7.5" barrel, S/N 3204. Blued finish, walnut grips. Six-shot percussion cylinder. Standard Pettengill patent markings and Raymond & Robitaille markings on top strap. Martially sub-inspected throughout with a weak cartouche on the left grip. Matching serial numbers on frame and cylinder, grips mismatched with the initials WH carved on the interior and a cross carved on the outside of the right panel. An old inventory number is on the bottom of the grip strap in old yellow paint.


Good. Barrel with a smoky gray patina, cylinder retains some blued finish. Markings legible but slightly weak on top strap, mechanically functional, good bore with some scattered pitting. Grips refinished, mismatched with added varnish and a blurred cartouche.
