Metropolitan Arms Co. Navy Model Percussion Revolver

About the item

An estimated 6,063 of these revolvers were manufactured around 1864-1866 by the Metropolitan Arms Co. of New York City. Samuel and William Syms (of the well-known firm Blunt & Syms of New York) are reported to have been officers of the business.

It has a small brass blade front sight, "" on top of the barrel, New Orleans naval battle scene on the cylinder, and matching partial or full serial numbers on the loading lever, barrel, wedge, cylinder frame, grip straps, and back strap mortise of the grip (hand-written in pencil).
