This is a fine looking and complete 1870 production Smith & Wesson model No. 2 Army. This one has the serial number of 76,227 which is outside the production numbers of the Civil War. According to the book it would have been made in the latter part of 1870. That year they started at 67,506 and ended at 77,020. It has the full-length 6 inch barrel and along the top of the barrel it has the clear "SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS”. These 6 inch barrels are the standard size on the second model Smith & Wesson revolvers. 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 pleasing look to the wood. The barrel of the gun has a gray surface metal with a very pretty tone. This is one of the versions that were nickel finished and it retains the majority of the original finish. 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 era .32 caliber rimfire revolver with a very pleasing look that displays quite well.
