The Colt model 1892 New Army is, as the name suggests, a .41 Cal version, a very rare and highly collectable piece.
The piece comes with a set of six cartridges.
The top of the barrel is stamped with the Colt patent and the left side of the frame bears the colt logo.
Serial number 159679 is stamped on the metal frame of the grip.
Both grips bear the Colt logo.
The cylinder catch, the cylinder hinge and the inner cylinder frame are serial-numbered 194. The difference in serial numbers comes from the different models of cylinders used on the same gun (1892, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1901 & 1903).

In 1892, the revolver was adopted by the United States Army chambered for .38 Long Colt cartridges, and was given the appellation “New Army and Navy”. Initial experience with the gun caused officials to request some improvements. This would be an ongoing condition, resulting in Models 1892, 1894, 1896, 1901, and 1903 for the Army, as well as a Model 1895 for the Navy and a Model 1905 Marine Corps variant.
