HISTORY: Although the 1860 Army used the same frame as the famed 1851 Navy revolver, it had an altered cylinder that accepted the Union Army's paper and linen cartridges consisting of round or conical lead balls, a 30-grain charge of black powder, and a percussion "cap" of   fulminate of mercury, which exploded upon impact--hence the term "percussion" revolver.  The paper or linen "wrapping" around the load was burned away by the detonation of the cap. The M-1860 was accurate to about 100 yards, and with its 6-shot revolving cylinder, was used to deadly effect during the War Between the States.  The military model had screw lugs on the side of the frame for mounting a detachable shoulder stock.

The Union Army purchased around 130,000 of these revolvers, and the ever-resourceful Southern armorers were quick to copy the design and produce the weapon for Confederate troops--which is how the M1860 came to be the most-used sidearm by BOTH sides in the conflict.
