CONFEDERATE
AUGUSTA MACHINE WORKS REVOLVER

This is a solid, very good condition Confederate Augusta Machine Works Revolver manufactured at the Confederate Arsenal in Augusta, Georgia in 1864.  Approximately 100 of these guns were manufactured.  About half have six stop cylinders and the other half were twelve stop cylinders.  This one is the twelve stop variety which does not come into the market very often.  Overall, the gun is in a smooth brown patination with no disfiguring pitting.  It has good rifling in the bore and an action that functions nicely.  There is a small chip on the left side at the end of the loading lever, where the latch is installed and an old lead solder repair to the left hand ear of the back strap.  The ear probably cracked and was soldered back together.  The repair looks old and I would leave it alone.  The grips show a reasonable amount of wear with slightly more erosion on the left side.  In general, the gun has a nice look and is completely authentic.  These guns were not serial numbered or otherwise marked except for assembly marks.  This one has a cryptic mark which is matching throughout and found on the top of the loading lever, back of the barrel, the cylinder pin, cylinder, back of the frame, right side of the hammer, inside the back strap, on the trigger guard and even on the grips at the bottom underneath the back strap.  SOLD!!
