    RARE, American Civil War Era Starr 1st Model 1856 Patent Army .44” Calibre Cap & Ball Revolver With Double Triggers & Factory Inspector’s Marks. Sn 11469 - 11469

    This is an original, rare, 1st Model American Starr Army Revolver in .44 calibre. Between January 1862 and May 1863 16,100 .44 calibre Starr Army revolvers were delivered to the United States Military at $25.00 per revolver. This model uses dual triggers to allow the shooter to fire the weapon in a cocked single action position without first pulling the hammer back by hand. The front trigger cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder. There is an adjustable lug attached to the rear of the front trigger that engages the rear trigger which is located in the rear of the trigger-guard which in turn, releases the hammer. The pistol also fires in conventional double action mode. These pistols were widely used throughout the Civil War and highly prized by Confederate troops. Later 2nd type pistols had single triggers. This 1st type example is original and has even patina to the white metal work throughout. It has a 6” round steel barrel which has a clean bore and crisp rifling. The barrel has a ‘k’ factory Inspector’s mark on the grip frame. The weapon has a blade fore sight and notched hammer rear sight. It is crisply marked on the right hand side with ' STARR'S PATENT JAN 15 1856' and on the left hand side ' STARR ARMS CO NEW YORK'. The cylinder is numbered '68602'. The one piece wood grip is original and undamaged and has Factory Inspector mark cartouches impressed on the left & right sides. The action works well and is very strong. This is a scarce American Civil War period revolver. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion revolver no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 11469
