2nd Model or Civilian

Postby Long Johns Wolf » Mon Jan 22, 2018 8:19 am

This is a Civilian 2nd Variation #C489 from 1960:
# 8" barrel, 3-screw frame, no notches in recoil shield, no toe on butt.
# C prefix serial number.
# Frame with rampant Centaure logo on forward left side ... as opposed to her first variation Civilian predecessor who does not feature a logo at all.
# Cylinder with "Centaure" proprietary naval engagement scene roll-engraved but without legend "ENGAGEND 10 MAY 1843" which you find on a first variation Civilian!
#"NEW MODEL 44" stamped between the cylinder's scenes' ends.
# Top of the barrel marking "1960 NEW MODEL ARMY".
# Silver plated TG and BS, varnished grip.
Civilians are a rare find no matter which variation. Less than 1000 specimens were made.
But if you want to discover one look on the Western side of the big pond!
Because >98% were sold by Centennial Arms Corp. of Lincolnwood, IL, in the U.S.A.
The survival rate of the Civilians?
Probably not more than 20 % if that much!

Nice, LJW. Looks like it's in great condition.
