Rogers and Spencer Army 44 BLACK POWDER ORIGINAL MUST SEE!
All original antique revolver manufactured by Rogers & Spencer Co. of Willow Dale, New York, this gun was part of a 1864 Ordnance Department contract for 5,000 revolvers. Most of these revolvers were delivered after the conclusion of hostilities in April 1865 and were never issued. The top strap is marked “ROGERS & SPENCER /UTICA N-Y”. The matching serial number is located on the bottom of the grip strap, the underside of the barrel, and the loading lever. Ordnance “B” sub-inspection marks are stamped on the barrel, frame, loading lever, cylinder, trigger guard, and grips. Cone front and frame notch rear sights. Fitted with smooth walnut grips with a boxed “RPB” cartouche on the lower left side with the left grip numbered on the inside. Very interesting and historical revolver. If you collect antique black powder revolvers, this is a must have!
