My friend in Nevada collects some interesting guns. This is one of those Atomic Age designs that really wears very well. It is the Whitney Wolverine, a .22 target pistol that was only made from 1955-1957, and which Olympic Arms has recently revived. Here is the original:
Instead of an aluminum cast frame, the Olympic Arms version uses a polymer frame with some very minor differences forward of the trigger guard:
The polymer frame version is very slightly lighter. Both guns are very pleasant to shoot, in spite of their light weight, with a very interesting Buck Rogers look to them. We were having some jamming problems, but I believe that it was because the .22 LR ammo we were using had been stored for a long period under poor conditions.
I have the view that I do not need any more guns. But I might change my mind about the Wolverine.
