Space Age Style Handgun



It was 1955 and the Space Age was about to launch. It would impact popular culture, art, architecture and design. And yes, even guns. That year, Robert Hillberg designed the Whitney Wolverine, a nickel-plated aluminum semi-automatic pistol that sported the flowing lines and curves of that era. It looks like a raygun, but instead fires .22 LR rounds.

Way ahead of it's time, it was an economic flop - shooters are very conservative. Now it's a collector's item, irony, eh?

That may have been the cause, although many gunnies that I know have no nostalgia for antique guns.

That's not me, though. A few weeks ago, an elderly man at the rifle range looked at my iron sighted bolt action and called me "old school."
