The top of the barrel is signed "Devisme a Paris." Devisme of Paris was known to have supplied weapons to a number of top Confederates, including President Jefferson Davis. This revolver has a barrel that locks to the frame with a swiveling key, which is fitted with a gear arrangement to automatically position the ejector rod when the breech is unlocked. Fitted with checkered bag shaped grips with a pair of screw escutcheons on each side
Very fine. The revolver retains 80% original bright blue finish with the balance a smooth gray patina (mostly concentrated on the grip straps). The grips are very fine with a small hairline crack near the frame and some minor handling marks. Overall the checkering is crisp. Mechanically excellent.
