Starr Arms Model 1858 Army Revolver

This is a fine example of a martially marked percussion Starr arms revolver in .44 Caliber with 6" barrel and 6 shot cylinder.  The mechanism is double action which was quite advanced for an American product of the late 1850's.  Interestingly enough, the Model 1863 actually regressed to a more simplified and economical single action design.  Both models were purchased and used by the US military during the Civil War.

This particular example is in Fine+ condition retaining 60% bright original blue overall with the balance turned to a light grey to light brown patina.  Strong traces of original case colors remain on the hammer and loading lever. Fine grips are solid and untouched with 2 excellent military inspector cartouches located on each side of the butt.  Excellent mechanics with a bright shiny bore with strong lands and grooves.
