AUGUSTA MACHINE WORKS 12 STOP REVOLVER. SN L. 7-11/16 octagonal bbl. SN L occurs on most major parts. Gun appears to be 100% orig and authentic in every regard with sharp edges. This is a very rare Confederate revolver with probably no more than 10 examples known of this variety. This is the finest example we have ever seen, and this may be the best example known. Action is crisp and tight. When Bill Albaugh published his book in 1963, Confederate Handguns, he was only able to list 3 known 12-stop Augusta Revolvers, and Bill Gary in Confederate Revolvers, published in 1987, only lists 5 serial numbers. There have been no more than 2 or 3 more come to light since then and these books were published and this is a fine untouched example. CONDITION: Gun is gray overall with scattered dings and scratches and scattered light pitting especially at muzzle. Frame and bbl housing still show orig tool marks. Brass triggerguard and backstrap are smooth and clean where handled. Distinctive bulged Augusta stocks retain about 30% orig varnish. 8-76205 JS23 (45,000-65,000)
