Umm...what?
« on: March 07, 2018, 12:46:09 PM »
Here is another "no clue" gun...advertised as a "steel frame Spiller and Burr"
Obviously it's a Whitney that some dumbass has Parkerized for reasons only known to themselves...might be a nice gun if you stripped the finish and left white.
Seller says "no signs of being fired"...well, probably not since Parkerized.

Right. They didn't go through all that trouble for no reason. (^h

Looking at the pictures it seems to me that it might be flat grey spray paint.

I could really fancy a Whitney Navy in 36.
Have to say..
There´s one up for grabs at a European auction beginning of april but that thing looks like it´s been to WWIII and back..and even i have limits.

One of these days though.. There´s actually one for sale here in Sweden ATM but it´s a 31 cal so...thanx but no thanx.
