Click on an image to enlarge
This is a fine looking and complete 1865 production Smith & Wesson model No. 2 Army. This one has the serial number of 32,309 which is just inside the production numbers of the Civil War. According to the book it would have been made in the early part of 1865. According to Flayderman serial number 35,731 was made on May 1st 1865. That year they started at 29,359 and ended at 48,475. It has the full-length 6 inch barrel and along the top of the barrel it has the "SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS" maker marking and production location. These 6 inch barrels are the standard size on the second model Smith & Wesson revolvers. The action on the gun works but hangs up sometimes and is a little clunky. The cylinder is the correct early style that has the 6 shot cylinder and you can still read some of 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 an old attic tone. 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 displays quite well.
