This is a good condition Starr Arms single action 1863 Army revolver. Manufactured in New York, these guns were of 44 caliber with 8 inch barrels and approximately 32,000 were made. Next to Colt and Remington products, the Starr single action was the major model of revolving handgun bought by the US government. This example is in very good condition showing a medium gray patina finish and solid grips. The edges are relatively sharp but show use and the markings and action are crisp. If you looking for a good, solid example to fill a collection need this one is priced correctly and very representative of a gun that has not been abused but was probably used throughout the war.
