ALLEN & THURBER Antique BAR HAMMER .36 Percussion Double Action SS PISTOL
American Double Action Single Shot Pistol
Here we present an antique Allen & Thurber Bar Hammer Double Action Single Shot pistol. This percussion pocket pistol was a popular pistol that was produced in Worcester, Massachusetts between the1830s and 1860s. Ethan Allen was already a prolific inventor and successful businessman in the 1830s when he came up with this design. It’s a .36 caliber pistol with a revolving screw off fluted barrel and has factory engravings in a floral motif executed on both sides of the frame. Made from 1830-1865, Allen & Thurber’s pistols, including their pepperbox, enjoyed even greater popularity than Sam Colt’s first pistol. The history that these pistols enjoyed over the years is astounding: the Seminole Wars, Gold Rush, Mexican War and American Civil War. These guns are true relics of American history.
