This is an attractive original .44 caliber Model 1863 single action revolver made by the Starr firearms Company of New York. It has a darker brown tone all over with a nice look. This one has all matching serial numbers of 38,906 except for the cylinder which is original but from another gun and has the serial number "23,371". As you can see the colors match and it appears to have been with the gun for eons. According to Flayderman's guide they made only about 32,000 of these single action Starr revolvers between 1863 and 1865. All of the Starr markings and patent dates are present on the sides of the frame. The action works well on all positions. These single action Starr revolvers are the model 1863 and have the longer barrel length than the earlier production double action revolvers. The barrel is full-length at 8 inches in length and this one has the front sight intact. One thing that is neat about this gun is that the owner put a single hole through the wood of the grip. He probably did this so he could run an improvised lanyard through the grip. The lanyard was used to help keep from dropping the pistol while in action. That is ingenuity! This stamp as well as the small letters on the other metal parts let us know that this is a military gun rather than being a civilian purchased one. This is a nice looking and complete Civil War single action Starr army revolver.
