Rogers & Spencer .44 Cal. SA Percussion Black Powder Revolver c.1863-1865


A large-framed and robustly made pistol, this .44 calibre 6-shot percussion pistol which was designed and intended for cavalry use, never quite made it to the front line.


Rogers & Spencer manufactured their Army revolver from a factory in Utica, New York between 1863 and 1865.

About 800 had been made for largely civilian use until January 1865, when the United States government contracted to buy 5,000 of the solid frame pistols. It was bad timing for R&S as delivery was made too late for US civil war service. They were warehoused for about 35 years and subsequently sold as scrap to Francis Bannerman and Son in 1901. Bannerman then sold the pistols to collectors and target shooters throughout the first quarter of the 20th Century.

Type:
Single Action Percussion Cap Black Powder 6 Shot Relvolver

Caliber:
.44 Ball

Condition:
Action is sharp and crisp and functions exactly as designed. The cylinder rotates perfectly and locks up exactly as it should. Overall cosmetic condition is well above average with almost no pitting.  Barrel is in oustanding condition with a clean, shiny bore with good rifling.  Grips are in good shape.
