Hi gents, just found a second gen 1860 army with a 5&1/2" barrel with the serial number of X002 on all parts, including the pin and wedge. Fine oil finished walnut grips, blue and casecolor, FLUTED cylinder, 99.8%, unfired. I called the factory but no info although they said the X serial numbers are usually guns that were prototypes, SOOOOO, I have this prototype for sale if anyone is interested and will send photos to your email. No box came with it, from a 40 year old collection, and I suspect it was "liberated' from the factory during the bankruptcy where many things walked. Call me at 330-952-0031 or email at [email protected].

3rd generation short barrel version, issued

Regarding the shorter barrels:

This 3rd generation revolver came with 2 barrels, both serial numbered to the revolver. This shows the shorter of the two installed.



The longer barrel is through the trigger guard.

Jesus Cadena, "Dr Chain", de Piedras Negras, Coah. made the quirt ca. 1964.

That makes me think of Marty Robbins' song about the "short-barreled bad .44"
