Bacon's are a rare civil war era revolver.....rarely seen. Quite valuable in good shape. Parts would be about impossible to find. A gunsmith would have to fabricate it for you. Best just keep her a wallhanger for display.


For those who have never seen one. Here is a link with some pictures.

I'll have to work on the picture ( no digital camera ) it's like the revolver in gopguys second link , has the engraving and all only it's missing the loading lever assembly and the trigger gaurd . It will never be more than a wallhanger/conservation piece but I guess dad wants it to be a complete wallhanger . Thanks for the replies and interest !
