This is a W.W. Marston Navy model .36 caliber cap and ball revolver. These are very rare percussion pistols, with an estimated 1000 produced from the late 1850 to the early 1860's. they are divided into three models. The first models are from serial number 1 - 200. Second models are from serial numbers 201 - 500. Third models are from serial number 501 - 1000. The serial number of 381 places this one in the middle of the Second model production. The serial number is stamped on the bottom of the barrel and on the loading lever. This six shot .36 caliber has a very bright bore with good rifling showing. The 7 1/2" octagon barrel has a small brass bead front sight. The barrel is stamped "WESTERN ARMS Co N.Y.". This stamp is a trade name and not the name of an actual known company. The cylinder is plain with no roll engraving. The cylinders for these guns were believed to have been made by Whitney. The mechanics of this revolver work well. The gun retains some of the original bluing and has a very eye pleasing, smooth appearance. The walnut grips retain the majority of the original finish. The right grip has a small chip missing, the pictures show that. The gun has an overall fine appearance. It will make a great addition to any Civil War era firearms collection.
