FS/T: Traditions/ASM 1861 Navy Conversion .38 spec


Recommended Posts

Howdy Gang:

Offered for sale or trade is a well maintained, used Traditions/Armi San Marco 1861 Colt Navy Conversion revolver. 7.5” barrel, .38 special chambering.   I acquired this in an estate purchase and do not know the extent of use. It is in very good condition with some typical “character” from use. It comes with the original box and papers. It is tight and appears to function properly, but I have not fired it. I don’t imagine it’s seen much use.  


Price is $475 plus shipping from my FFL to yours.  I’ll figure out actual shipping to your zip, and then add some $ for my FFL’s time.  Shipping will be as reasonable as I can make it.

 

First “I’ll take it” on this post wins, followed by a PM to arrange details. Please PM me with questions or if you’d like additional photos. 
 

I am open to trades both SASS and non-SASS. I am looking for a good SASS 12ga double for my 12yo son to have as back-up. I’m also looking for a Colt Official Police 6” bbl .38 spec. If you have other interesting trades, PM me and we’ll see what happens. 

I’ll accept a check from a verified SASS member (held til cleared) or a USPS money order. 

Thank you for your consideration.

 

JJ

Cool.  A Type I Richards conversion. ASM did a good job on those.  Never available from Uberti or Pietta Bros.

Yes, it is a VERY cool Type 1 but I beg to differ with “Never available from Uberti…” I have a pair of Type 1 Richards in .44 Colt made by Uberti and imported by EMF, in fact they are consecutive serial numbered.

If I hadn’t overspent my funds recently I would definitely be adding this one to my stable.

The Richards Type 1 has got to be the best looking of the open tops.

Sorry Sgt. but I think you should look again at your Type 1's.  I do not believe Uberti ever made any.  The ASM's were imported by EMF, Navy Arms, Cimarron, and Traditions.   If yours have the Uberti stamp or name on them, please post a picture as it would be a first.

Well color me embarrassed. I swear my 72 year old memory could see “Uberti” alongside EMF BUT when I grabbed the pistols to photograph the underside of the barrel, somehow Uberti disappeared. Both guns are stamped “ EMF SA “ and that is all.

My sincere apologies for correcting Palouse without first checking to be sure.

LOL   I would absolutely if I didnt live in a state where getting a handgun permit takes over a month and requires background investigations and affadavits of good character every single time!  Tired of it!  Good luck selling a beautiful handgun!
