16,100 .44 caliber Starr Model 1858 DA Army revolvers were delivered to the United States military between January, 1862 and May, 1863 at $25.00 per revolver. This model actually uses dual triggers to allow the shooter to fire the weapon without first pulling the hammer back by hand. The front trigger cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder. There is an adjustable lug attached to the rear side of the front trigger that engages the rear trigger which is located in the rear of the trigger-guard which in turn, releases the hammer. The Model 1858 with its rather novel double action unfortunately was a design whose time had not yet come and was prone to breakage due to the more intricate design over the single action revolvers(Description from Rebel States Currency, Civil War Sidearms Page.)
