Antique Starr Double Action 1858 Army Revolver, 90% Brilliant Bright Blue, Great Cartouches
STARR ARMS CO., NEW YORK – STARR’S PATENT JAN 15, 1856, right facing

U.S. Model 1858 Double Action Army Revolver, .44-caliber, 8-inch round barrel, six shot, round cylinder;
nipples on back, walnut grips display two inspector cartouches.; serial number: 8565. Fine original
condition, tight and smooth; all matching numbers. Standard one-line address on left side of frame. Patent
marking on right side. The Starr action is unusual… many collectors, do not understand how to work the
revolver. When operated in single action, the sliding bar on the rear of the trigger is placed in its lower
position. When the trigger is pulled, the bar stops its travel after the hammer has been cocked, but before it
can reach the sear. The sear, which is mounted on the trigger guard behind the trigger, can then be pulled
to fire the gun. For double action operation, the sliding bar is placed in the upper position. There is a hole in
the trigger guard that the bar can go into and a pull on the trigger continues past the cocking point and the
trigger hits the sear, firing the gun.
