This has always been one of my favorite Civil War revolvers. It is the .36 caliber revolver made by the firm of Savage Firearms of Middletown, Connecticut. On the top of the frame it has a crystal clear maker’s mark as well as the 1856, 1859 and 1860 patent dates. You often see these revolvers listed as double action but they are actually a self cocking revolver. When you pull the ring trigger on the bottom back it cocks the gun as well as advancing the cylinder to the next position. Then the small trigger at the top actually fires the gun. This one works on all positions which is a rare thing to find because most of the time the action is messed up because both triggers have been pulled at once. This one has a darker gray surface to the metal all over. All of the metal parts have a darker tone giving the gun a well used look. The original walnut grips are intact on the handle with the wear from service that you can see in the pictures. On the left hand grip, you can see the inspector cartouche of "DFC". These are the government inspector initials of David F. Clark. This stamp lets us know that it is a military model pistol instead of being a civilian purchased one. This is an attractive displaying gun with one of the Civil War’s most unique designs.
