RROD01. SERIAL NUMBERED - CONFEDERATE ENFIELD RIFLE RAM-ROD: This is a serial number ram-rod for a Confederate Enfield Rifle. It is serial number 6301 and is 38 3/4 inches long. This number places it in the range of the 500 guns produced by James Kerr. Kerr Enfield rifles represent slightly less than 2% of the total delivered and to date only 6 of the 500 P-1853s delivered by James Kerr are known to still exist. The Enfield rifle with this number is one of those surviving examples, but the whereabouts is unknown. It has the same serial number and is “K” marked forward of the butt plate with a JS-Anchor worn off. If you have this rifle let me know. Shipping & Insurance is included. $2000.00


ENFIELD RIFLE/CARBINE TOMPION: The Enfield rifle & carbine cork Tompion was designed to plug the barrel to prevent water from entering when the weapon was not in use. It is only 1 1/2 inches long with a cork body, a brass tip, and a brass crown. One came with each issued Enfield rifle or carbine, but being so small it was easily lost. I have seen several battle-field examples dug from both Union and Confederate camps, but not so many non-dug examples until recently. I was able to acquire three, which are all complete with no issues. Each is for sale at the same price. Shipping included. $75.00

Michigan Cavalry Soldier armed with an Allen & Wheelock Revolver

F381. ALLEN & WHEELOCK CENTER HAMMER ARMYThis is an example of a Civil War Production Allen & Wheelock Army revolver that was manufactured by the Worchester, Massachusetts firm in 1861-62. Allen & Wheelock manufactured approximately 700 Center Hammer Army revolvers; the Ordnance Department purchased 536 of these revolvers in 1861. Nearly all those guns were subsequently issued to the 2nd & 3rd Michigan Volunteer Cavalry regiments. The revolver was a .44 caliber, six-shot, percussion single action revolver that had a 7 ½” half-round and half-octagon barrel that utilized a unique ratcheting loading lever that formed the trigger guard of the revolver. Surviving examples are rare. Overall, this is a nice example of a mid-production Allen & Wheelock Center Hammer Army percussion revolver. The gun remains in very crisp, complete condition with assemble number 187, and displays well with some traces on original finish on the underside of the barrel and recessed areas; but overall, a smooth gray patina. Several revolvers close to the number of this gun are listed in the Springfield Research Service file, with numbers 169, 236, 238, and 254 being listed as having been in the possession of A company of the 2nd Michigan Cavalry. As only two small record groups of Allen & Wheelock Army serial numbers are known, Company I 3rd MI Cavalry and Company A 2nd MI Cavalry, it is quite likely that this gun was issued to another unit of the 2nd MI Cavalry. This would be a wonderful addition to any advanced collection of secondary martial revolvers and will certainly be a fine addition to that Michigan Cavalry grouping.

F385. RARE - CONFEDERATE HOLSTER & MARTIALLY MARKED SAVAGE NAVY REVOLVER: Confederate holsters are rare to find, and it is even more uncommon to find one for a Savage Navy Revolver.  I purchased this directly from Tim Prince of (College Hill Arsenal) and just love its look! The holster is brown leather; complete with the flap, and has the complete back belt loop, but missing the retention button. It is worn at the hammer location and at the bottom where the barrel is visible. The Savage Navy revolver has an even brown patina; is missing the front site; properly cycles; has original grip which have a carved cross over the original cartouche, but does not hold in the full cock position. Shipping & Insurance included. $4100.00

F395. CONFEDERATE ALTERED - HARPERS FERRY 1842 MUSKET - 1845 DATED:  This 1842 Harpers Ferry musket is Confederate altered to the size of a 2-band rifle, and once had a Confederate blade site. It is in attic-found condition and has not been cleaned and is all original! The stock is rough with a few splits in the stock near the left side of the barrel, but the wood is strong and not loose. The lock properly functions in both half & full cock position and is dated the same as the barrel;1845. The ramrod is originally for an 1860 Springfield rifle, but was shorten and treaded at its bottom, not just cut down. On the top of the barrel, you can see two groves for a Confederate blade site, which is long gone. There is also is saddle wear on the underside forward of the trigger guard.  Shipping & Insurance is included. $995.00

F414. REMINGTON MODEL 1858 - NEW MODEL REVOLVER: This is a complete and original Remington Model 1858 – New Model Revolver. It is a brown gun with no original finish and light pitting, but is tight and properly functions. The top and bottom of the barrel are worn, but you can make of the Remington maker stamp and part of the serial number 35809, which matches the number on the frame under the grip. This number places production in September 1863 making it a mid-Civil War gun. The grips are original and martially marked with a strong cartouche. Mint condition gun are very nice to collect, but they never saw the elephant, this gun did. Shipping and Insurance is included. $1400.00

F417. SMITH & WESSON NO 2 "OLD ARMY" REVOLVER: The Smith & Wesson No 2 Old Army revolver was a six shot, .32 caliber single action revolver that fired a .32 caliber rimfire cartridge. It was introduced in 1861 and remained in production until 1874. During that time some 77,155 of the revolvers were manufactured. Those pistols under serial number 35,731 were produced prior to May 1, 1865 and are considered Civil War period. This gun is serial number 35,103, which places it near the end of the war production. It has seen hard use and is a brown/gray gun with no original finish. The maker mark on the top of the barrel is weak, but there; the barrel is fairly tight to the frame with only a slight wiggle; the action is tight when the hammer is cocked, but the top retention spring does not always hold the cylinder tight. The grips are original with some original finish and match the frame. Shipping & Insurance included. $675.00

F443. ADAMS REVOLVER - MODEL 1851 DOUBLE ACTION REVOLVER: The Adams Model 1851 double action percussion revolver was one of the most successful English revolver designs of the mid-19th century and many were imported for use during the American Civil War. Robert Adams received his patent for a solid frame, one-piece revolver design in 1851. The patent covered his design for a very strong revolver, where the frame and barrel were produced from a single forging. Adams additionally patented a self cocking lock work, which today would be referred to as “double action only.” This mechanism cocked the hammer, rotated the cylinder, and released the hammer, all as the result of a single pull of the trigger. In 1854 Adams also patented refinements to his original frame design by adding a sliding frame mounted safety on the right side of the frame. Those revolvers produced by Adams himself are usually suffixed with an “R” or with no letter at all. Some were purchased directly by the US government, and Schuyler, Hartley & Graham purchased a quantity for private sale to officers and State units. Some of the Schuyler, Hartley & Graham guns (about 300) are reported to have been purchased by the state of Alabama prior to the start of the war. Virginia and Georgia are reported to have made pre-war purchases as well. Though the Confederate government did not have a contract for Adams revolvers, Southern units were known to have them. Several Confederate identified and presented Adams revolvers exist in public and private collections, including in the Museum of the Confederacy, and two Adams revolvers attributed to the Confederate naval aboard the CSS Shenandoah. Most Confederate war-time purchases are believed to have fallen within the 33,000 to 42,000 serial number range, although it is quite likely that guns produced prior to that range, and many of those previously imported to America, were used as well. In some cases, the guns were “new old stock”, sitting on the shelves of London and Birmingham firearms retailers, that were sold to Confederate speculators. Civil War regiments that are known to have carried or been issued Adams’ patent revolvers include the 8th PA and 2nd MI cavalry on the US side and the 1st, 5th & 18th VA and 5th GA cavalry on the CS side.

This Adams Model 1851 Percussion Revolver is in about VERY FINE. It is the classic 54-Bore handgun with a 5-shot cylinder and a 6 1/8” long octagon barrel. The obverse frame is engraved in a single line below the cylinder: ADAMS’ PATENT . No. 30352. The top barrel flat is unmarked, and the cylinder bears the matching serial number engraved: No. 30352. This serial number is close to the known range of Confederate guns (33,000 to 42,000)! The cylinder has the Birmingham commercial proof marks alternating between the chambers, a {CROWN} Cross Arrows / V and the barrel has a Birmingham commercial view marks, {CROWN} Cross Arrows / V on the upper left angled flat. The revolver is unadorned and shows no engraved embellishments other than some simple boarder line engraving around the edges of the frame. The octagonal barrel is rifled with three wide grooves, and the rates about VERY GOOD++ and is bright. The entire gun retains much original blued finish. The cylinder has a dark, mottled smoky blue-black patina, typical of an Adams cylinder that has seen some real use and service, and retains all original cones (nipples). The hammer shows age discoloration, and the trigger has a silvery-gray patina. The iron trigger guard has an untouched mottled gray-brown patina. The butt cap has a dark, even, plum brown patina with moderate oxidation and some pinpricking. The action of the revolver properly functions, and the gun times, indexes and locks up perfectly. The loading lever is complete is functions. The revolver retains the original front sight base on the top of the barrel. The original notch rear sight on the rear of the frame is undamaged. The checkered one-piece walnut grip is in about VERY GOOD+ to NEAR FINE condition. The grip is solid with no cracks or repairs and is in genuinely nice shape. Overall, the condition of the revolver is indicative of a gun that saw some use and was fired to some degree during its lifetime but was well maintained. Overall, this is a nice example. Shipping and insurance included. $2700.00

F446. COLT M1852 NAVAL REVOLVER - 1861This is a Colt M1852 Naval Revolver produced in1861. Colt produced in 1861 as a 1851 NAVY (.36 CALIBER WITH NAVAL ENGAGEMENT ON CYLINDER, OCTAGONAL BARREL). The gun is complete with all original parts and matching serialnumber 109757 except the wedge which is 722 crossed out. It most likely was factory installed.   The colt address is legible on the barrel top as is the serial number on the cylinder; but the cylinder scene is weak. The action is tight and holds in both half & full cock. The grips are original and tight. The gun was nickeled plated. This is a very desirable early Civil War revolver. Shipping & Insurance included. $1500.00

F458. CONFEDERATE PURCHASED JS-ANCHOR MARKED KERR REVOLVER: With the outbreak of the American Civil War, Caleb Huse (the South’s primary purchasing agent in England) engaged the London Armory Company to produce all the Kerr’s Patent revolvers that they could for delivery to the Confederacy. It is believed that nearly all the L.A.C.’s output of Kerr revolvers from April of 1861 through the close of the Civil War were produced on contract for the Confederacy, with about 9,000 pistols produced and shipped to the south during that time. The estimate regarding revolver production is based upon the extant examples with Confederate provenance or marks, which tend to primarily exist in the 1,500 to about the 10,000 serial number range. To date, at least three separate Confederate government contracts have been identified for the purchase of Kerr revolvers. Two were army contracts, and one was a 1,000-gun contract for the Confederate Navy. One of the standard indicators of CS importation and usage of a Kerr revolver is the presence of the JS / (ANCHOR) inspection mark that is found on the front of the wooden grip of the pistols, below the grip frame tang. This is the inspection mark of John Southgate, who acted as a “viewer” (arms inspector) for the Confederacy. The Kerr’s Patent Revolver offered here is in FINE+++ condition and is serial numbered 8632 on the right side of the frame and on the cylinder; with the London Armoury Co mark on the right side of the frame by the grip; alternating (Crown) / V and (Crown) / GP London commercial proof marks found between the chambers of the cylinder; and L.A.C. along with the commercial London view and proof marks of a (Crown) / GP and (Crown) / V. on the barrel. The walnut grip is in outstanding condition and has a clean JS/Anchor stamp. The gun properly cycles and the hammer locks. Shipping & Insurance included. $5850.00

F460. EARLY MARTIALLY MARKED REMINGTON-ELLIOTT OLD MODEL 1861 NAVY REVOLVER: In June of 1862, the Ordnance Department ordered 5,000 additional “Navy” caliber revolvers from Remington. The guns delivered appear to be a combination of late Remington Beals Navy revolvers and the Model 1861 Elliott revolvers. The serial numbering of the Model 1861 revolvers continued from the Beals Navy revolvers, with the numbers mixing somewhat randomly at the end of Beals production and the beginning of Model 1861 production. This can probably be attributed to the using up of older parts on hand, thus the existence of “transitional” Remington Navy revolvers. Between August and December of 1862, a total of 5,001 .36 Remington Revolvers were delivered under this contract. Due to reports of issues in the field with the early Elliott Model 1861 revolvers, modifications and improvements occurred during the production, and the “Old Model” Navy revolver eventually morphed into the “New Model” or Model 1863 revolvers. No additional .36 caliber revolvers would be purchased from Remington by the Ordnance Department after the final December 1862 deliveries, but a huge number of the New Model 1863 Army revolvers would be acquired between 1863 and 1865. Offered here is an example of a Remington Elliott “Old Model” 1861 Navy Revolver. The gun is an earlier production 1861 Navy that is essentially a transitional model retains the earlier Beals concealed thread frame; a tall spur hammer; and does not incorporate the design modification of the filister head screw to retain the cylinder arbor pin in the top of the loading lever. This means the pin can be withdrawn without lowering the lever and the cylinder removed. The revolver is serial number 15340, and the number is present on the frame under the left grip and under the barrel. The 7 3/8” octagonal barrel of the revolver is roll marked in two lines on the top flat: PATENTED . DEC. 17 1861 MANUFACTURED BY REMINGTONS’ ILION, NY The first line refers to Elliott’s patent for the loading lever that allowed the cylinder pin to be removed without lowering the lever, an improvement that was really a fatal flaw! The second line is rolled with a worn Remington address die and is somewhat weak. The revolver is martially sub-inspected and has a script cartouche on the left grip.  On the underside of the left grip are the initials “J. G.” is a dot pattern and the right grip has the name “H. HORNE” stamped in the wood. It looks like there is a middle initial, which may be an “A” but it is hard to discern. There are several solders names “HORNE” and more research is warranted.  Shipping & Insurance included. $2100.00

F462. 1858 – HARTFORD COLT MODEL 1851 NAVY REVOLVER: This is a Hartford Colt Model 1851 Navy Revolver, serial number 86301, which dates it to 1858. Many of the pre-war Colts went south prior to the Civil War, and this one recently surfaced in Mississippi.  The serial number matches all parts to include the wedges, and the cylinder, which it unique because it appears to never have had a cylinder-scene, and has a channel grove. I suspect the original factory engraved cylinder failed inspection and was swapped out before the serial numbers were applied. On examination, you can see that all the numbers match and were stamped from the same dye. On the top of the barrel is a clear Hartford Colt maker stamp. The grips are tight and have never been removed; the action is tight and hold in half-cock and properly functions; and the patina is even and the same on the entire gun. On the bottom of the grip the initials “W K” are scratched into the brass. However, this is not enough for an identification. Shipping & Insurance included. $2400.00

F467. HARTFORD CT – COLT M1851 NAVY REVOLVER: A sizable portion of the Hartford Colt 1851 Navy revolvers in the 90,000 to 100,000 serial number range are believed to have been shipped to the South prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. Unfortunately, the shipping records for this style revolver were lost in a fire that nearly destroyed the factory; however, some records did survive and many guns in the 98,000 – 135,000 can be traced, and this is one of those guns. This gun was shipped to J.C. Grubb & Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 14, 1861 in a lot of 100 guns.  It is unknown to whom the revolver was sold and could have gone to a Pennsylvania officer or purchased by a Southern Confederate agent since only 4 states had seceded by this date. The revolver is 100% complete with all original screws; original grips; tight action; and has matching serial number on all parts to include the cylinder and wedge. The cylinder scene is gone due to wear, but the numbers are faint but visible. Also, some original silver is on the underside. The original Colt letter, a $300 value, is included with the revolver. Shipping & Insurance included. $2900.00

F468. CIVIL WAR - MISSOURI RANGE - LEFAUCHEUX 12MM REVOLVER: The Lefaucheux revolver was one of the most modern and advanced handguns to see use on the battlefield during the American Civil War. Thousands were imported by the US and at least a few hundred saw service with Confederate soldiers, and although the US government purchased about 13,000 M-1854 Lefaucheux revolvers, surviving examples and regimental records indicate far more were imported. The primary importer of M-1854 revolvers was George Schuyler who purchased 10,000 Lefaucheux revolvers for the US government. Most were directly from Lefaucheux in Paris; however, some Belgian copies were also imported during the war. The Ordnance Department did not appear to differentiate between the French and Belgian made versions, much like they often lumped French and Belgian made muskets together without any distinction at all. Other importers who provided pin-fire revolvers to the US government included Herman Boker, Schuyler, Hartley & Graham, George Raphael, and Alexis Godillot of Paris. US cavalry units that received significant numbers of pin-fire revolvers included the 5th IL, 2nd & 5th KS, 6th KY, 8th MO, 1st WI and the 9th MO State Militia Cavalry. The Springfield Research Service serial number books list the serial numbers for 69 Lefaucheux revolvers that were in the possession of Company B of the 9th Missouri State Militia Cavalry during 1863. These 69 revolvers range from serial number 33,895 through 42,522. This 9,000+ range of serial numbers within a single company of US cavalry makes it relatively easy to extrapolate that Lefaucheux revolvers within the 25,XXX through at least the 45,XXX range are within the realistic realm of Civil War used revolvers, and clearly any pistols with a lower serial number could easily have seen use during the war as well. Confederate units under the command of General Nathan Bedford Forrest had at least a few hundred of these revolvers in their possession in late 1864. A May 25, 1864 Ordnance Report from Meridian, Mississippi by Forrest showed his 1st Division in possession of 190 French Pistols and his 3rd Division in possession of 160. It is almost certain that these French Pistols were Lefaucheux revolvers. Additionally, in 1864 the Selma Arsenal was offering Lefaucheux revolvers for sale to Confederate officers at a price of $25 each. In August of 1864 Selma listed the following pistol ammunition in their inventory “For French Pistol (LeFaucheux) caliber .472k “52,800 rounds.” This is very clear indication that CS Ordnance Department was actively trying to keep ammunition available for a decent number of Lefaucheux revolvers in the field. Using the theory that the CS Ordnance Department was trying to maintain an inventory of between 20 and 50 rounds per pistol, this would indicate they were trying to keep between 1,056 and 2,640 pistols supplied from Selma alone.

The M-1854 Lefaucheuxpatent revolver offered here a classic example of a Lefaucheux produced revolver in about FINE++ condition. The right side of the frame shows the standard LF prefixed and serial number 35478, which most likely makes this a Missouri gun. It is the typical 12mm, single action pistol with an octagon to round barrel that typified the martial pin-fire of the Civil War. The left side of the frame is marked with the usual two-line oval Lefaucheux patent cartouche; with the Lefaucheux mark on the top of the barrel. The interior surface of the loading gate is marked with the assembly mark 91E. The gun has a smooth light plum brown patina. The gun is 100% correct and original with no replacement parts or repairs. It retains the original front site (the rear site is in the hammer nose), the lanyard ring in the butt, the original ejector rod and the original loading gate catch. The original 2-piece grips are in about FINE++ condition and retain about 95% of their original varnish. The pistol has an excellent action that is crisp and correctly works with fine timing and lock up. The loading gate opens and closes freely and locks closed; the ejector rod functions smoothly as well; and the bore is in GOOD++ condition. This is a nice example of the classic military pin fire pistol pattern that saw substantial use during the American Civil War. The gun is in outstanding condition when compared to the condition these pistols are normally encountered in. This is a pistol with nothing at all to apologize for and is absolutely 100% original and correct. This pistol is well within the serial number range of known Civil War pin fire revolvers for the state of Missouri, and could easily have been captured and use by Southern soldiers.

F469. CONFEDERATE BROWN LEATHER HOLSTER & 1858 - HARTFORD COLT 1851 NAVY REVOLVER: Prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, many of the Confederate states purchased Hartford Colt 1851 Navy revolvers in preparation for hostilities. Unfortunately, Colt archive records are incomplete and it is difficult to know where many of these early guns were shipped. However, sometime they are discovered with an original Confederate brown-leather holster supporting the fact it was a Confederate carried revolver. I purchased this from Brian “Rebel Relic” Akins who told me it was discovered in Tennessee. It is a Hartford Colt 1851 Navy revolver, serial number 89744: production year 1858. It is a steel frame gun with matching serial number on all parts except the period replaced wedge and the unnumbered steel backstrap. The original grips have been period checkered with a diamond in the center on both sides. The action is soft, but properly function and holds in both half and full cock positions. The brown-leather Confederate holster is in near-mint condition and has form fitted to the revolver. It is complete with a re-enforced toe and near 100% original stitching. The flap is complete and secures to a brass stud, and the backstrap is held in place with five brass rivets. The high quality of the holster may indicate it belonged to an officer, and would be priceless if the revolver were a Griswold or other Confederate made gun. Shipping & Insurance included. $3500.00

F470. 1860 - HARTFORD COLT 1851 NAVY REVOLVER: Prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, many of the Confederate states purchased Hartford Colt 1851 Navy revolvers in preparation for hostilities. This gun walked into the Marietta Georgia Civil War show with a high probability it was Confederate purchased since its serial number is 93415: production year 1860. Sadly, Colt archive records are incomplete and it is difficult to know where many of these early guns were shipped. This gun is in amazing condition with strong tight action; all original screws; silver plated brass backstrap and trigger guard; original varnished grips; matching serial numbers on all parts; some cylinder scene; and all original nipples. This is a highly desirable war-time Colt Model 1851 Navy revolver with a high possibility of being Confederate purchased. Shipping & Insurance included. $3500.00

F471. CONFEDERATE KERR REVOLVER – 2ND VARIATION: The London Armoury Company Kerr’s Patent Revolver is one of the most distinctive and instantly recognizable of all Civil War era handguns. With the outbreak of the American Civil War, Caleb Huse (the South’s primary purchasing agent in England) engaged the London Armory Company to produce all the Kerr’s Patent revolvers that they could for delivery to the Confederacy. It is believed that nearly all of the L.A.C.’s output of Kerr revolvers from April of 1861 through the close of the Civil War was produced on contract for the Confederacy, with about 9,000 (and possibly at many 10,000) pistols produced and shipped to the south during that time; and it is believed that nearly all of the L.A.C.’s output of Kerr revolvers from April of 1861 through the close of the Civil War was produced on contract for the Confederacy, with about 9,000 (and possibly at many 10,000) pistols produced and shipped to the south during that time. The 2nd variation guns are numbered from about 1051 until 2700 and still have the rammer pivot screw forward of the frame but the top strap above the cylinder becomes flat. The checkering on the wood grip is slightly modified to allow for a small, clear panel behind the trigger for the “JS-Anchor” viewer’s mark. The serial number on the gun is 2672. It is fully functional with the cylinder turning and locking when the hammer is cocked. The gun is properly marked in the grip and L.A.C with inspection marks on the barrel and cylinder. It is a brown gun, with 100% complete grip and lanyard ring and a strong “JS-Anchor” viewer marks. These are getting harder to find in nice condition. Shipping & Insurance included. $4995.00
