    I'm not certain about opening it. I don't want to force it. There is a lever on the left side that moves, but I didn't muscle it.

    Yes on the hammer. See below compared to above.

    Very Nice, you know I would be tempted to try, those Merwin & Hulberts were way over built..

    You are dealing with an open top So you do not have several parts of the frame to lock up..

    Just a little You tube to show it opening if you are even thinking about maybe trying... I would oil the frame connect area...

    If you want skip to 3.40



    When /if you do this, see how much vacuum you have on that middle pin the cylinder rides on still has... I have seen a couple of those
    that were horribly rusted and yet still had a strong vacuum.. love the look of that, putting grips on that would not be that hard...

    Those guns were sold in the day at almost half the price of the colt SAA and in lots of ways were better manufactured..

    That is a mechanical design way ahead of its time, thanks for the video.

    I believe that is the caliber...standing for Winchester 4440.
