Original U.S. Civil War Smith & Wesson Model 2 Army Revolver - Serial No 10224

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent example of a Smith & Wesson .32-caliber rimfire Model 2. The serial number is 10224 dating the year of production to be approximately 1863. The perfect rosewood grips are original and have matching serial number. Wonderful finish to the metal work, with clean crisp action, crisp bore and nicely marked on top of the barrel:


Revolvers with serial numbers under 35,731 are considered to be civil war guns since they were manufactured before May 1st, 1864. All are 32-caliber rimfire with a six shot non-fluted cylinder. All were manufactured with rosewood grips and blue or nickel-plated finishes. The barrels are marked. The patent date is stamped on the cylinder and the serial number is on the butt. Each has a six inch barrel.

According to published sources, 77,155 Model 2 Army revolvers were made. To date, the serial numbers on observed specimens have not substantiated this figure, 76,642 being the highest number noted. Unfortunately, the Smith & Wesson factory records for this period are incomplete and do not give a comprehensive picture of production.

This is a rare chance to own a historically significant gun in truly excellent condition!
