Shawk & McLanahan. Brass Framed Revolver
« on: December 22, 2012, 05:17:03 PM »

Shawk & McLanahan. Brass Framed Revolver

SN 8. Cal. 36. This rare gun was made in St. Louis, Mo. just prior to the Civil War by Abel Shawk and J.K. McLanahan. About 10 of these unique guns are known. This Navy caliber revolver, with a 7-15/16" totally round bbl, is based somewhat on Whitney's design and functions quite well. This gun is discussed and pictured in a recent article by Frank Graves in the January/February 2010 edition of "Gun Report". This example is complete, all orig and "as found" with most desirable markings "Shawk & McLanahan" and "St. Louis & Carondelet, MO." This is a great example of Civil War era pistol in the best condition found.
