Savage Navy Revolvers are seldom found with much of any original finish, and this one is no exception. However it is about the finest condition gun with no finish that I have come across. All markings, edges, action and grips are about as sharp and crisp as could be found. Take a close look at the photos and you'll see what I mean. Discernible cartouche and a near perfect, deep address on the top-strap tell the story. Almost the entire production of these guns were purchased and issued to Union forces during the war and this is no exception, being fully sub-inspected. A great gun.
