Description:

These New Model Army revolvers were manufactured from 1863-1875. They were the second most widely issued revolvers by the Union during the Civil War and continued to be issued in the Indian Wars. This example is outstanding, especially for a Civil War era military contract revolvers given most show heavy wear and finish loss, but it remains excellent overall. The barrel has the standard New Model legend. There are government inspection marks, including a "RH" cartouche on the grip. The barrel and both grip panels are numbered to the gun. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Extremely fine, retaining 85% bright original high polish blue finish with noticeable cylinder drag line, slight thinning on the grip straps, high edge wear and the loading lever web having faded to a plum. The grips are also excellent with a few minor handling marks and crisp cartouche. Mechanically excellent.
