    Starr Arms SINGLE ACTION, 6 SHOT, 44 .44 Revolver

    Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverUsed£ 1,599

    Quite rare in comparison to civil war colts but still the 3rd most issued revolver at that time. Some info off the internet below.


    "On September 22, 1863 Starr entered into an agreement with Colonel Ramsey, acting Chief of Ordnance for its largest revolver contract for 25,000 of the improved Army Pistol at a cost of $12.00 each. The first 1000 of these revolvers was delivered on December 19, 1863 with this revolver (S/N 29,676) being delivered in March of 1864. The last shipment of revolvers was delivered on December 22, 1864."



    Very good plus overall with strong flashes of blue on cylinder barrel and frame in protected spots, traces of rainbow hues on lever and hammer, 30XXX matching on all visible numbers.
    Most of these single action had a cartouche on the grip, although worn you can still see a trace on this particular revolver. The initials of a previous owner are roughly carved into the bottom of the grip, it once had a lanyard loop fitted so perhaps used by a cavalry soldier.

    A big old gun. Ive added a pic of it next to a Remington 44 (gun at the bottom). The original double action was somewhat disliked by some soldiers, hence this later single action larger 44. In some ways it as superior to colts at that time. Great vid on youtube for more info. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WReCXvTTt0g

    I would prefer buyers to come and see the gun but under the circumstances i will post, shipping is £12

    A good honest example of a civil war revolver, no licence is required. Its over 100 years old, antique, obsolete and legal to own as a display piece. All mechanisms in working order and not deactivated.
