STARR DOUBLE ACTION 1858 ARMY REVOLVER

$1,250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 362-823

Starr made about 23,000 revolvers circa 1850s-1860s. The single action replaced the Model 1858 double action because it was less expensive to manufacture. The only revolvers that surpassed the Starr in numbers sold to the government during the Civil War were the Colt and Remington.

This is a .44 caliber, six-shot revolver with a 6” round barrel. The serial number 10707, which is clearly stamped on the cylinder and on the frame under the hammer. The frame markings are clear, “STARR ARMS CO., NEW YORK” on the left side and “STARR’S PATENT JAN. 15, 1856” is on the right side.

The gun metal is a uniform light gray with some scattered small patches of darker oxidation. The frame retains traces of original blue is some recessed areas.  Surfaces have minor wear and scratches with a few small dings. The action is crisp and strong. Bore is clean with good rifling.

The walnut grip has a visible cartouche on each side. There are also tiny sub-inspector stampings on various parts throughout the pistol.  A very nice example of a Civil War double-action pistol.   [jet]  [ph:L]
