This is a beautiful and complete Civil War production Smith & Wesson model No. 2 Army. This one has the low serial number of 27,697 which is well inside of the production numbers of the Civil War. According to the book it would have been made in 1864, which was only the 4th year of production for these guns. The records show that they started 1864 at the serial number of 15,860 and ended the year at 29,358. It has the full-length 6 inch barrel and along the top of the barrel it has the clear "SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS”. The action on the gun works well. The cylinder is the correct early style that has the 6 shot cylinder and you can still read the 1855, 1859 & 1860 patent dates. The handle has the original 2-piece walnut grips present and they have a great look to the wood with some of the original varnish hanging on. The gun has a smooth gray surface to the barrel metal with a very nice amount of the original bluing in the protected areas. These Smith & Wesson revolvers were utilized during the Civil War by well-to-do officers including General Grant and General Custer. This is a nice complete Civil War .32 caliber rimfire revolver with a very pleasing look that is definitely a step above those you usually encounter.
