Pietta Griswold and Gunnison Revolver

Product Code : GRS-AND-GNN-RVL

$225.00

Samuel Griswold and his partner Arvin Gunnison took advantage of the interest-free loans and generous contract terms the Confederate government offered to southern factories who would convert their facilities over to producing sidearms for the Confederate Army.
In 1862, they began producing a copy of the 1851 Colt Navy revolver, except it had a brass frame instead of steel. These were good quality pistols but were never made in large numbers. About 3,600 were manufactured before it was destroyed by Federal troops in 1864.
36 caliber, 7.5" barrel
