The 1860 Army revolver was adopted as US government ordnance because of its lighter weight, improved balance, and superior ballistics. This 6-shot percussion revolver became very popular with mounted troops and went on to be the issued sidearm for the US Army for many years. The 1860 army steel fluted model features a steel frame, shoulder stock frame cuts and screws, round barrel, fixed front blade sight, ratchet style loading lever, rebated cylinder with half fluting, brass backstrap and brass triggerguard, and an Navy sized walnut grip.
