This is Civil War era revolver of the style that is known to collectors as the "Transition” pattern revolver. They get their nickname because they come from the time when they were trying new ideas to transition form the single shot pistols to the true revolvers. This pattern was a great design on paper but the way the double action forced the cylinder to rotate was too much pressure most of the time and the springs would break. This one still works well on all positions. This one was made in England and has the correct British style proof marks on the major components. It is designed with 4-1/4ths inch barrel with the original front sight. On the top of the barrel it is engraved by the maker "GIBBS BRISTOL". This is the mark of George Gibbs that went into the gun business in 1830. This gun was likely made in the 1850's. The gun is in very nice condition all over. The metal of the gun has intricate engraving and as you can see it displays quite well. On the handle of the gun it has the original 2-piece wood grips with the intricate checkering from the factory. The triggerguard, frame and hammer have ornate floral and geometric engraving in the metal. This is a great looking gun that doesn’t break the bank account.
