Confederate 2nd Model Griswold Revolver


Cal. 36
S# 2093

The most popular and iconic of Confederate revolvers are the brass frame copies of Colt 1851 navy revolvers made by Samuel Griswold in Griswoldville Georgia.

This is good looking example with superior condition frame, barrel and cylinder. Serial Number “2093” stamped on left side of frame, barrel and cylinder. Cryptic “I” over “I” is observed on bottom of barrel near latch and back of cylinder with functional safety pins, good twist in iron is seen in cylinder. Traces of original blue finish found on bottom of barrel.

This revolver has long collection history and is listed by serial number in Bill Albaugh’s 1955 text “The Brass Framed Colt and Whitney”.
