Guns made for the Army had hard rubber grips with the Colt rampant logo embossed at the top edge while those destined for the Navy had the word Colt embossed in a oval in the same area. The Colt Model 1892 Navy and Army was the first general issue double-action revolver with a swing out cylinder used by the U.S. military, indeed Theodore Roosevelt the newly promoted Commander of the Rough Riders carried a New Army revolver recovered from The USS Maine when they stormed San Jan Hill in the Spanish American war of 1898.
