Manufactured in 1865 with a total production of approximately 5,800 with 5,000 under contract to the U.S. Ordnance Dept. The order was completely delivered by September 1865.

This example - serial number 253 - has matching serial numbers on all major components. Blue with two-piece walnut grips with inspector cartouche on left grip. Military sub-inspection stamps on all appropriate components. CONDITION: Fine overall with approximately 50% original blue on barrel, balance a brown patina, 80% original blue on frame, balance to patina. Backstrap mostly a grey/brown patina. Approximately 85% original blue on cylinder with most blue loss on one side near serial number. Grips show light to moderate wear with most wear around the flared butt. Overall a very clean revolver that has seen minimum use. -MKS-
