Just received: The history of the Merwin Hulbert revolver debacle has been a roller coaster ride. The idea of reintroducing the revolvers was hatched several years ago when A-Square of Wyoming was purchased by the Sharps Rifle Co. More than 150 enthusiasts sent in deposits, and in some cases, complete payments, for revolvers which had not even been machined yet. The company never did produce a working prototype. Six frames and some assorted parts were machined, but no barrels or cylinders. Ultimately, Broadsword Group consummated a deal to assume the companies of Sharps Rifle Co., A-Square of Wyoming, Heiser Holsters and Spencer Rifle. The company is referred in general as SRC. The first order of business was to reimburse every Merwin Hulbert customer their deposits. It totalled over $150,000. And now, SRC is in the process of passing along the Merwin project to a company with a history of firearm reintroductions. Sorry, I can't give you an update on who this might involve, or the progress. The Merwin Hulbert revolvers were ahead of their time, and it's my hope, too, that these revolvers could get reintroduced. I know the demand is there. I hope this answers your questions. Sincerely, Damon SRC Customer Service Dept.
