FOREHAND & WADSWORTH Antique “BRITISH BULL-DOG” Double Action .38 REVOLVER Here we present an antique Forehand & Wadsworth “BRITISH BULL-DOG” .38 Caliber Double Action Revolver, made circa the mid-1880s with a production run from 1879 to 1890 in Worchester, Massachusetts. The revolver was a small, well-built, self-defense weapon, ideal for potent conceal and carry in the closing decades of the tumultuous 19th Century.  It was made by the sons-in-law of Ethan Allen, the successful firearms inventor and manufacturer from the 1830s.  This revolver features a double/single action trigger and six shots of .38.  This top strap is marked “BRITISH/BULL-DOG”. These were petite and handy little guns that chambered 6 cartridges, perfect for the pocket and enough to get out of most scrapes. With gangsters, and career criminals running rampant, this example would have been the “pocket advantage” a person needed. The overall condition is very good.
