    Hi SWOwner,

    Today I got my letter from Colt regarding my Model 1860 Army Revolver S/N 44776. It was sold to the United States War Department and shipped to Lt.Col. G. D. Ramsay, Washington Arsenal on June 24 1862 in a consignment of 1,000 guns. Not sure what to make of this. Bad news no regimental info? Good news it was a US Army revolver.

    Thanks for the information - I will post it to my Shipment Thread shortly. Hope you eventually find out the unit - still searching for mine...

    Another bump. At this link Civil War Weapons - Army of Tennessee Relics | Confederate Belt Buckles, Artillery, Buttons, all Authentic Civil War Relics is No. 307. Scroll down to WP 23. It shows traces of silver on the backstrap and trigger guard and has varnished grips, which would suggest a civilain gun. It sure wasn't used as hard as 373 and 390. The SRS records shows among others Nos. 273, 279,341,and 343 going to Co. D of the 2nd. Hmmm....again more questions arise. Neat holster with the gun,isn't it. Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with this site. I found it while looking for Henry rifle info.

    Edit: Just found while Googling: 61 navy No. 457 in a Julia anction;SRS lists No. 456 as issued to Co.D 2nd Ill cavalry. This one, 457, doesn't show much if any silver on the grip straps in the 3 pictures I found of it on the Julia site. I suspect there was a lot of pure randomness as to both assembly and shipping of the guns in those early days of the war. IIRC, MacCauley's book on Civil War revolvers mention Illinois as having bought Colt Navys in 1861 and Baumann in Arming the Suckers cites "421 Colt's Navy revolvers" issued to the 2nd on November 11,1861. I guess you could perhpas call Nos. 373 and 390 "State Martials"

    Regards,
