Click on an image to enlarge
This is a neat piece for ya'll mechanics out there. This is an original 1865 production Smith & Wesson model No. 2 Army. This one has the serial number of 38,580 which is just outside the production numbers of the Civil War. According to the book it would have been made in the late 1865. According to Flayderman serial number 35,731 was made on May 1st 1865. It has the full-length 5 inch barrel and along the top of the barrel it has the "SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS" maker marking and production location. It is missing the ejector rod under the barrel. The action catches on both positions but the cylinder does not rotate. It is also missing the cover plate off of the left hand side. 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 grips present and they have a pleasing well worn look to the rosewood. The barrel of the gun has a gray surface metal with an old attic salt and pepper 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 for the price.
