Description

The "No. 2 Old Model" was a popular personal side arm of many officers in the Union forces during the American Civil War, and is also known as the "Army" model although the US government never bought any of them for military service. It was first introduced in 1861, and made until about 1874. The "No. 2" refers to the frame size, "No. 1" having been the first, .22 caliber pocket revolver and the "No. 3"'s being the large-frame revolvers. The 1 1/2 was introduced after the number 2, and since it fits in between the no. 1 and no. 2, it was named the no. 1 1/2. The no. 2 was owned by such famous Americans as General George Armstrong Custer and "Wild Bill" Hickok, the marshal of Deadwood... This specimen is one of the first three-pin versions and it is in excellent condition. It retains 90% of the original nickel plating, with a bit of flaking near the breech and on the extractor rod. The markings are crisp and the grips are equally nice with most of the original varnish intact. There are no cracks or missing chips, and only minor handling marks on the high spots, and a small "X" carved into the butt. The grips are original, and numbered to the gun. The action is crisp and accurate, the hinge is tight and the bore is shiny and bright, with sharp rifling. The 3-pin design was introduced at about serial number 3000, so this makes it one of the first to have this improvement incorporated. Old Models in this condition are becoming increasingly hard to find. Six inch barrel, early production SN 3536, rated excellent overall.
