GENERAL CUSTER 1861 NAVY REVOLVERCOLLECTOR'S ARMOURY This elegantly engraved pistol is an identical replica of the 1861 Navy revolver presented to General Custer during the Civil War. Cock the hammer and twirl the cylinder, and the locking pins and percussion cap will be revealed. Pull the trigger and experience the same satisfaction its famous owner must have felt in 1862. This percussion revolver was widely used in the American Civil War and it continued to be a prominent firearm in the settling of the American west.
The wolf’s head design on either side of the hammer was one of many fascinating flourishes added to the revolver by the famed 19th Century engraver L.D. Nimschke. This re-creation is exact in every detail, right down to the craftsman’s guide, the letter “P”, which was placed adjacent to the serial number, calling for special handling so this weapon could be plated. The handsome grips offer an intricate eagle and shield design. The checkered patterning on both sides are perfectly restored to cover the area that was blotted out by the personalization plate. The personality of this reproduction is as bold as the charactar of its original owner. WARNING!click here for important Safety Information
