POTD: Ring Triggered Brass Framed Savage Navy Revolver

Welcome to today’s Photo of the Day! Here we have a unique Savage ring trigger revolver. These Savage revolvers were adopted by the navy during the American Civil War and had mild popularity. The thing that makes this particular black powder Savage Navy revolver unique is its brass frame rather than the typical steel. According to the Cody Firearms Museum’s Facebook page (check them out!) these brass framed models only numbered in the low hundreds.

“Only a couple hundred Savage Navy revolvers were made with brass frames out of the roughly 20,000 made during the Civil War. These .36 caliber guns are quickly recognizable due to their distinct shape.”
