Starr Arms Co. Model 1858 Army, Cal. .44 Percussion. MFG. 1858-63, SN. 5821, 6'' barrel, Double action revolver. Manufactured by Starr Arms Co. of New York City, Models 1858 & 1863 revolvers as a group were the third most widely used revolvers by the Union forces during the Civil War. Around 23,000 of these Model 1858 Army revolvers were manufactured in the late 1850s & early 1860s, most were sold the U.S. government. The dark molasses walnut grips have very clear inspector cartouches stamped on both sides & are in excellent condition despite several small contusions & minor chipping along edges. It has the additional standard military inspectors markings stamped into the cylinder and frame. Matching serial numbers on frame & cylinder. The hammer, trigger & lever retain nearly all of the original but now toned down case-colors. Balance of revolver is factory high polish mirror Royal blue, retaining approximately 95% with the balance simply flaked from age. The cylinder retains about 20%, the rest has flaked off & in its place the metal has started to turn a brown patina. The bore & the tight action is excellent. Sharp legends on both sides of the frame. About as fine of a surviving Starr double action as you can hope for. Excellent example for the civil war collector. Antique No FFL Req. - Value: 4500 to 9000
