Seller's Description:

A NOTE TO MY BIDDERS: I will NOT contact you either during or after this auction to offer you the gun at a reduced price. Please consider any such contact as a scam attempt...don't get taken!

NO RESERVE!! The Whitney Wolverine was an advanced, "space-aged", light-weight aluminum, semi-automatic, .22 LR calibre pistol created in 1955. It had a 10 round magazine, and weighed only 1.3 lbs. The Wolverine was engineered by Robert Hillberg, who learned about aluminum during WWII while working with aircraft guns and later became research engineer for High Standard Gun Company. Only 13,000 of these pistols were manufactured. The frames were cast by Alcoa. The pistol was named "Wolverine" in honor of Mr. Hillberg's favorite football team, the University of Michigan Wolverines. A victim of poor marketing, the Whitney Wolverine was way ahead of its time with its very unique space-age design.

This pistol is in excellent overall condition. The original finish rates 95-97% with some handling marks only. When received, the rear sight was missing but an original replacement was found and has since been installed (see updated pics). The mechanics appear to be in good working order and the bore is excellent. A neat looking pistol that feels good in your hand too. Buyer pays $20.00 shipping. Your C&R License is acceptable for transfer if permitted in your area.



LEGAL REQUIREMENTS: Modern firearms must be transferred through a licensed FFL dealer in your area. Bidder to supply a signed copy of local dealer’s license before shipment will be made. A C&R License is acceptable for C&R firearms only (guns determined to be C&R’s by ATF and guns known to be at least 50 years old). I still ship to California but the buyer must supply me with their FFL's CFD# in addition to the Federal License. California law will NOT allow shipment of C&R HANDGUNS direct to a C&R holder in the State of California, a 01 dealer must be used. I can only ship LONG GUNS directly to a California C&R holder. Please call the California Dept. of Justice/Firearms Bureau @ (916)263-4887 for further clarification. Antique firearms require bidder to supply proof of age. Some areas still require an FFL transfer for antique & black powder firearms (New Jersey, NYC, etc.)
Large capacity magazine restrictions: New Jersey - 15 round maximum for semi-automatic firearms only. California - 10 round maximum for all magazines. Maryland - 20 round maximum for all magazines. Massachusetts - over 10 rounds Hawaii - 10 round maximum for all handgun magazines.

PAYMENT OPTIONS: Postal Money Orders and Cashier's Checks ship fastest; Personal and business checks are gladly accepted but will delay shipping 2 weeks for clearance (I know the good ones clear faster, but the bank is sometimes slow in notification of a returned check).
VISA & MASTERCARD NOW ACCEPTED! Please note that all auction prices reflect a 3% discount that cannot be earned when paying with a credit card. Credit Card payments cannot be accepted over the telephone as a signature authorization is required to charge your card (for those in a rush, it can be faxed). Payment should be received within 10 days of close of auction.
NO PAYPAL! I ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL!! Paypal’s terms do not allow the purchase or sale of any firearms, ammunition or high capacity magazines….period!! For more info, please go to their website and follow the links: user agreement / acceptable use / firearms, weapons and knives policy. If you use them for a gun transaction and they find out, they will close your account & freeze your money for 6 months. How do I know? They did it to me! I WILL NOT SUPPORT AN ANTI-GUN COMPANY!!

SHIPPING: Buyer pays shipping cost as mentioned in the description of the item. Quoted prices are for the lower 48 States…AK & HI are often an additional charge. HANDGUNS are shipped USPS Priority Mail/Insured; LONG GUNS are shipped UPS ground/Insured. If you prefer another type of shipping, it can be arranged. I include a signed copy of my FFL with each firearm shipped. Please note that purchases cannot be “picked up” at my location. All firearms are shipped. U.S. sales only, no exports…this includes antiques.

SAFETY NOTICE: Buyer is solely responsible for determining that a used gun is safe to shoot. The firearms offered have not been test fired but have been given a visual inspection only for auction purposes. It is a requirement that every used firearm is inspected by a qualified gunsmith before firing. By bidding, the buyer agrees to hold seller harmless against damages, injury, or death caused by defective merchandise.

RETURN POLICY: All firearms come with a 3-day (M-F) inspection/return privilege. Inspection period begins at time of delivery to your dealer…it is your responsibility to inspect the gun in this time frame. In the case of a return, buyer pays all shipping so please ask questions BEFORE you bid.

FEEDBACK: I am a licensed firearms dealer and have over 5000 positive feedbacks here on AuctionArms...bid with confidence.

  Questions from Auction Arms Users...
    Q:  Hello- pardon the question, but it's been a long time since I've bought a C&R gun... can this be shipped to California? Thx, very interested. 11/12/2009
        A:  Yes, a C&R handgun can be shipped into California and transfered to an individual. However it can only be shipped to a California 01 FFL holder and cannot be shipped directly to a C&R holder. Regards, Mark 11/13/2009
