Colt M1861 "round barrel navy" revolver, martially marked with several sub-inspector marks visible on barrel, triggerguard and backstrap. Serial number 5945, matching on barrel, frame, triggerguard and butt, wedge is unnumbered, and no number is visible on the cylinder. Cylinder is dramatically blown apart with three chambers left intact. Backstrap and butt have screw plugs, possibly from a shoulder stock. Metal parts have a light patina overall with some light pitting and dings on iron parts. Hammer screw is a replacement. Wood grips are worn smooth with minor handling marks and initials FB on right side. Mechanics look as if it would work if equipped with a new cylinder. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
