$3,500.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 748-14

Manufactured by the Savage Revolving Fire-Arms Company, this original percussion sidearm is an original, double-action Navy Model revolver in excellent condition. In 1860, business partners Henry S. North and Edward Savage of Middletown, Connecticut established the manufacturing firm in that city and produced a total of 20,000 such sidearms from 1861 through the mid-1860s. Revolver is a .36 caliber model with a six-shot, plain cylinder, a 7 1/8” long octagonal barrel that employs a hinged type loading lever assembly. Barrel has a screw-in brass front sight. Revolver iron frame is flat-sided and fitted with a heart-shaped trigger / lever guard.

Two-piece walnut grips are in very nice shape and have a faint inspector’s cartouche and a very lightly scratched name of “T. J. HALL.” Barrel is unstamped but retains approx. 75% to 80% of its original blue. Standard maker marking on top frame strap “SAVAGE R. F. A. CO. MIDDLETOWN CT / H. S. NORTH PATENTED JUNE 17, 1856 / JAN 18, 1859, MAY 15, 1860.” The plain unrebated cylinder is unmarked. Frame is gray with light mottling and some minor surface rust. Nipples are original but worn and there is some built up dirt in the recesses. Frame screws slightly buggered. Loading lever housing has much of the original blue. Mechanics good.

Wonderful example of the Savage revolver.   [ad]
