I am located in Canada and brand new to the the 1858 and wondering if there is a way to find out who the gun was shipped to when it left the factory and perhaps find out how it got up here. Any info would help.

Hi Don,
If your revolver has small inspection letters stamped on the major parts and a cartouche on the left grip it is a martial revolver, which was accepted by the Ordnance Department and shipped to them in October of 1864. There are no records of to which unit it was issued or to which individual it was assigned. The absence of a cartouche on the left grip means it originally had one and it has been worn off over time, or the grips have been changed, or it is a non-martial revolver which was sold to the civilian trade. There are also no records of where or to whom revolvers to the civilian trade were sold. Many of the revolvers used in the Civil War were also used in the West when the War was over so it’s anybody’s guess how it got to Canada.

Hi Bill I am aware of the book and have been trying to find one but no one seems to have stock. Looks like a very good book to have.
