Description: serial #44, .36 caliber, 7 1/8" octagon barrel. This is a very fine example of these rare American revolvers. The top of the barrel is properly marked "SAVAGE MIDDLETOWN, CONN / H.S. NORTH PATENTED JUNE 17TH 1856" and that marking remains 90% plus legible. The serial number "44" appears on the left side of the grip frame, cocking lever and front guard, left side of hammer, left side of loading lever, back of cylinder and on bottom of barrel while the assembly number "92" appears on the bottom of the barrel, bottom of frame, on both pieces of the cylinder, and on the inside of each grip. This all matching all original revolver remains in very good condition with the barrel, cylinder and other iron components bearing a generally smooth finish with a few light marks and some light oxidation in a couple areas. The brass frame bears a pleasing, mellow patina. The two piece walnut grips rate about very good as lightly refinished long ago. This revolver represents the beginning of what would become the much better known Savage Navy model revolver. A rare and unusual American percussion revolver. (15873-51) {ANTIQUE}
