Starr Model 1863 Army Percussion Revolver

.44 caliber, 8" barrel, S/N 38769. Blued finish, color case hardened hammer and loading lever, walnut grip. Matching numbers throughout. Standard Starr markings on both sides of frame, military sub-inspection marks throughout, clear script EF cartouche on left grip and script STB on the right grip. A much better-than-average example of a Civil War contract M1863 Starr Single Action Army revolver.


Very good. Retains some streaky original blue on the barrel and frame with fading, wear and loss. Some traces of case color are visible on the hammer and loading lever. Metal mostly smooth, with some scattered light surface oxidation and minor light pitting. Markings remain clear and crisp throughout. Mechanically functional, very good bore with light pitting. Grip very good with two nice cartouches, scattered bumps and dings and a small grain crack on the right side below the grip strap.

Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000
