RELIC SAVAGE NAVY MODEL REVOLVER-RECOVERED IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA IN THE 1950’S

$595.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-4348

This relic revolver is .36 caliber with a six-shot cylinder and a 7 1/8” long octagonal barrel. Revolver has the full-length barrel, frame, cylinder and grip frame. Missing parts include the loading lever, trigger, hammer, triggerguard and wood grips. Cylinder appears to be empty. None of the nipples remain.

The revolver has broken where the top of the cylinder frame meets the grip frame. It is now in two sections that have been wired together. One section consists of the barrel and top of the cylinder frame, while the other section is the cylinder itself and the grip frame. The wire that holds the two sections together looks old and feeble and should be replaced. Also the previous owner has zip-tied the relic to heavy cardboard. These ties can easily be cut if desired.

All iron is rusted and no markings are visible. Cylinder is frozen. Heavy rust has been removed.

In 1860, business partners Henry S. North and Edward Savage of Middletown, Connecticut established the manufacturing firm of Savage Revolving Fire-Arms Company. The firm produced this sidearm from 1861 through the end of the Civil War. Most found their way to cavalry units in the western theater of the war but a few eastern regiments had them as well.

This relic was recovered in the Richmond, Virginia area in the 1950’s.  [ad]
