Confederate Griswold & Gunnison .36 caliber (AH6848)
Confederate Griswold & Gunnison .36 caliber percussion revolver serial number 766. This is a very handsome example, the iron surfaces mostly toned to a mix of mild gray-brown and gunmetal gray patina. The revolver shows the proper assembly numbers and familiar “cryptic” inspector markings, the following areas stamped with backwards “GG”: inside back edge of frame, right inside front strap, right inside backstrap and underside barrel behind the loading lever retainer. Next the assembly number “16” is found on the trigger, hammer, right inside front strap, left inside backstrap and pencil-numbered along the back inlet on the grip. The inside surface of the barrel lug also shows a tiny “11” or “II” and the loading lever is an original mismatched component assembly-numbered “8”. This is a very attractive and honest example of these desirable Confederate revolvers.
