A good Cased Continental 6 shot .36 calibre percussion revolver retaining much original blued finish. Circa 1862. Complete with accessories including nipple key, bullet mold, cap tin, powder flask and oil bottle, housed in a green baize lined wooden case. The top of the case engraved U.S.A. Med. Dept in an oval brass plaque. The revolver marked on the blued cylinder with Liege proof marks. 6.5 inch blued octagonal barrel with bead fore-sight and heavily rifled. Decorative engraving to the frame and trigger guard. Finely chequered grip. Pistol length approx 12.5 inches. The pistol in excellent condition retaining much of the original blueing to the frame and cylinder. Nice crisp action. Overall size of case 15 x 9 inches. At the onset of the Civil War(1861) both sides were forced to purchase large numbers of weapons from Europe so they could at least put a gun in a majority of their soldiers hands. This case set was probably imported to the USA during the American Civil War (1861-1865). A rare opportunity to acquire an excellent blued percussion revolver with all its accessories probably used during the American Civil War. Ref 7376.
