Martially marked 1860 Army four screw that features full round barrel, rebated cylinder with Naval scene, case colored frame cut for shoulder stock, brass trigger guard, steel backstrap and one piece walnut grips with inspector cartouche on left panel. You will find full or partial matching numbers on the following: frame, barrel, cylinder post, trigger guard, backstrap, wedge and cylinder. You will find the military inspector stamps as follows: "C" on left side of barrel, "S" on right side of barrel, "TT" and "S" on cylinder, "B" on bottom of left grip panel, "T" on trigger guard, "TT" on steel backstrap. Left grip panel bears the inspector stamp "OWA" for Orville W. Ainsworth. Ainsworth was assigned sub-inspector of contract arms in 1861. The barrel has the New York address and retains over 90% of the original factory blue with razor sharp legends. Loading lever retains most all of its vivid deep case colors. Wedge still has generous amounts of bright factory blue. Cylinder retains approximately over 95% original factory blue with a 100% sharp Naval battle scene, all original nipples and nearly all the original safety pins. Frame retains virtually all of its original case colors, most still brilliant. Steel backstrap retains approximately 90% of the original bright factory blue. Walnut grips are excellent. Trigger still has the majority of its original fire blue, as do most of the screws. Brass trigger guard has softened to a untouched mustard color. Even the head of the wedge that is always beat has original blue finish. Indexes and locks up as if it were made yesterday and has razor sharp rifling. This exemplary four screw Martial is truly one of the finest examples ever offered. From the Jim Linton Collection.
