"Accidental" Schneider & Glassick
« on: July 13, 2020, 09:43:02 AM »
As defined by the late Dr. Jim Davis, an "accidental" S&G is a Reb (brass) Colt 1851 Navy revolver with 7-1/2" Bbl, blued finish, and in original "Navy" .36 caliber chambering with a non-rebated smooth cylinder featuring no roll-engraving. I picked this one up about 10 years ago being advertised as a brass Navy reproduction and paid under $100.00 for it as a result. It met the "A"S&G criteria, so I jumped on it.
As Dr. Davis explained to me, these are actually more rare than the S&G repros because they weren't manufactured with the intent of being an S&G repro..just a brass Colt Navy repro with no frills!

Unless it is just the lighting, I like the color of the brass in the photos.

Is that an ASM logo on the left front of the frame? What is the date code?

Regards,

Jim

Yes, ASM. Don't recall the date code but will check for you tonight.
The brass has a very pleasing patina. When I first got the gun I polished it to a brilliant gold, then let it age naturally. I have not fired this gun since purchase.
