Civil War Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver, 1863, 10th Ohio Cavalry range


1 in stock



Just as honest as they come and fresh from an estate in Georgia, this fine old battle weapon has very good timing and a decent bore. It is 100% unmolested in any way, brown as an attic found weapon should be.  Barrel marking is clear as are numbers.  The government inspector mark in the grip is weak but visible, as is the cylinder serial number.  It has a very soft trigger pull—for sure a master gunsmith tweaked this one a little.  #99716 was manufactured in early 1863 and according to the Springfield Research Database, it was likely issued to the 10th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry.
