Original Civil War .44 Caliber Starr Double Action Revolver There is no date or numbers so it is impossible to accurately date this one, but it is Civil War. This is a true “double action” pulling the trigger cocks the gun, pulling the 2nd back trigger fires the gun.The loading lever is still intact and works well. The spring is tight and smooth and it does work and cock and fire. The chamber revolves perfectly. A beautiful massive display pistol. Many Civil War soldiers carried private purchase “back up” weapons as illustrated in the photo above. This gun has no condition issues and is 100% guaranteed to be authentic, and unaltered. A fantastic display piece. In collectors grade condition, a very nice working artifact. Complete museum documentation (COA) provided. This is a pre-1898 antique gun so no federal registration is required. Although this is a working gun we do not recommend firing antique guns. If you decide to shoot it, we will not be held liable for any results. You are responsible for knowing your local laws. No sales to New Jersey, New York City, or outside the United States.
