Description This gun was commissioned for the Columbian Exposition of 1893, held in Chicago.

This gun is a double action revolver with a three-and- one-half-inch barrel. The engraving is solid silver overlay. The barrel and cylinder are etched in a raw steel finish. The trigger and trigger guard are blued. The grips are fluted wood.
