Springfield Arms Navy
« on: February 26, 2013, 06:23:14 PM »

The revolver is serial numbered 42 and is one of two known in an original case.  Barrel length is 6 and caliber is .36.  It is estimated that less than 150 were made in 1851 when Colt put them out of business for patent infringement.  It is engraved with extra acid etch treatment on the barrel.  It is blued except for silver plating on the frame and a casehardened loading lever and hammer.  The bullet mold is marked Springfield Arms Co

In the latest edition of Arms Heritage Magazine ( www.armsheritagemagazine.com ) there is the first part of a two part article on the Springfield Arms Company and James Warner.  There are several different types of pistols and rifles that were made by this company.  Very collectible and interesting.
