Original Civil War Period Engraved Manhattan .31 Caliber Revolver. There is no date or numbers so it is impossible to accurately date this one. It is a deluxe engraved version with very nice fancy grips. The loading lever is still intact and works well. The spring is a bit off but it does work and cock and fire. The pistol goes off at the half-cock position. The chamber revolves but is a bit difficult. A beautiful display pistol. Many Civil War soldiers carried private purchase “back up” weapons as illustrated in the photo above. This gun has condition issues but is 100% guaranteed to be authentic, and unaltered. A fantastic display piece. 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.
