A Kopek letter accompanies this revolver in which he states this early gun used a percussion style mainspring and that the front guard screw and base pin are later replacements. The matching four digit serial number can be found within the backstrap grip channel and comes with a period piece of paper dating to 1912 where this revolver was bequeathed. He could find no record of 2847 but this is a very early example. "2847" can be found stamped on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, backstrap and cylinder. The Ainsworth "A" stamp can be found on cylinder, barrel, trigger guard and backstrap. The one piece walnut grips have a barely visible but not readable cartouche on left side. Has an early two line patent address and first type barrel address. Left side of frame stamped "US". Nearly full front sight. All metal is currently a soft, homogenous grey patina. Legends are sharp. Frame screws are fairly straight. Grips have numerous small dings and chipped at toe. Indexes with all four clicks. Strong, clean rifled bore. Very difficult to find early 1874 production Cavalry revolver.
