    ORIGINAL AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ERA, Rare Savage Revolving Firearms First Model, 6 Shot, .36 Calibre Double Action Revolver. Sn.15669

    This is a rare original American Civil War Savage U.S. Navy First Model Savage 6 shot double action revolver. The revolver manufactured by the Savage Revolving Fire-Arms Co. of Middletown, Connecticut from 1861-1865, the total production being approximately 22,000 guns. This revolver features a unique heart shaped trigger guard with round cocking lever, off-set hammer, six-shot cylinder, 7” octagon rifled barrel and hinged loading lever. The Savage Navy had a unique way of cocking and firing the gun. The gun is cocked by using your middle finger to draw back the figure 8 lever to cock the hammer and rotate the cylinder. The figure of 8 lever is then released forward and the separate trigger is pulled to fire the gun. The Savage Navy revolvers were used by both Union & Confederate Officers during the Civil War. The 7 inch rifled barrel has sharp rifling and is fitted with a brass foresight bead. The action is crisp and the gun cocks and dry fires correctly. At some stage during its life this pistol has been professionally restored to a very high standard. As a consequence of that there are no visible maker's marks on the frame. NB As an antique percussion pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15669...Read full description
