Smith & Wesson No. 2 Old Model Army Tip-Up 32 RF

Owned by such notable as President Hays, General Custer and Wild Bill Hickok the No. 2 “Old Army” model was carried extensively as a side arm during the Civil Way (War of Northern Aggression), it was never officially adapted by the Army. It features a 6” octagon barrel, round blade front sight, three pin top strap, six shot cylinder, spur trigger and rosewood grips. It retains about 60% original blue with the areas of loss filled with grown and gray patina and some patches of pin-prick pitting while the bore grades at Antique Excellent with just a handful of small patches of light pitting and the grips are completely sound with only a few handling marks. The action works perfectly and both frame and cylinder lock-up have only the very slightest movement. The serial number is 39307 which appears on the butt and inside the right grip panel and the assembly number 228 appears at the heel under the left grip panel as well as on the barrel and cylinder. A very nice example of the first S&W adopted by a police department and the pistol Bill never had a chance to get to at the #10.
