This is a good looking .36 caliber Manhattan Firearms Company revolver. These Manhattans look almost identical to the .36 caliber Colts of the Civil War except they were made by the Manhattan Firearms Company. They have the Manhattan mark across the top of the 4 inch barrel as well as the production location of Newark, New Jersey. It reads "MANHATTAN FIREARMS CO. NEWARK, NJ / PATENTED MARCH 8, 1864.”This one has all matching serial numbers of #1,157 including the barrel wedge. This number is one of the from the fifth series production of the Manhattan revolver. This is the six shot version that is listed in the books. According to Flayderman’s guide these were manufactured June 30, 1867 to December 1, 1868. It also has a good bit of the cylinder scene that is still visible. You can see each panel and it has some of the image inside the panel still visible. You can also see the 1859 patent date stamp. The action works well on all positions. The backstrap and triggerguard have a pretty golden color all over that is thick and rich. On the handle of the gun it has the original 1-piece walnut grips intact with an attractive look and an excellent grain to the walnut. There is still a fair amount of the original factory varnish remaining on the walnut wood. This is a pretty, original Manhattan pattern .36 caliber slightly post Civil War revolver.
