Does anyone here currently own a Whitney?

There are a few I'd like to own, but the answer is no.
Have you guys ever seen this one?
I've always wondered if this was after the sale to Winchester.
There is a picture of what they called a proto type Marlin which looks like it.

Pistol is what I was thinking. I believe they are no longer in production,although I believe you can still get the Confederate Spiller & Burr version.

I don't think anybody has made a Whitney since Palmetto made them in the 70's. Pietta still makes the Spiller & Burr.

Sorry Guys,

I guess I just really love that 1888 Whitney Single Shot.
As far as the revolver goes, I've watched a number of Pallmetto's
on auction but refuse to pay so much for a low quality revolver.
I do have two Spillers, one Pietta and one DD mark imported by Navy Arms.
Palehawk Down once told me he had a deal with the people at Pietta to get some Stainless Steel Spillers,
but he has never contacted me with any more information.
