The 1860 Army revolver was adopted as US government ordnance because of its lighter weight, improved balance, and superior ballistics. This 6-shot percussion revolver became very popular with mounted troops and went on to be the issued sidearm for the US Army for many years. The 1860 army white snub nose model features a steel frame, white heat-treated steel parts (to be cared for like blued steel), shoulder stock frame cuts and screws, round barrel, fixed front blade sight, brass loading rod included in the box, rebated cylinder with half fluting, steel backstrap and triggerguard, and a flattop birdshead checkered walnut grip. A conversion cylinder is available for this model that is a drop-in conversion to smokeless .45LC/.45Schofield ammunition.
