Colt Model 1851 Navy Revolver (Lower Canada)
Serial #28268, .36 caliber, 7 1/2" octagon barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is an 1855 manufactured revolver that has all - matching numbers, including the wedge and cylinder arbor, with the barrel retaining some traces of the original bright blue on the underside at the muzzle and at the lever pivot. The balance of the metal has a speckled gray patina with some small spots of pinprick pitting here and there and mild freckling throughout. The sides of the lever have visible traces of the original color case - case hardening (also on the sides of the hammer) and the cylinder is mostly a mottled pewter gray with some freckling at the face and mild pinprick pitting around the nipples. The naval scene remains about 80% visible with minor areas of darker freckling and deeply struck, crisp London proofs. The frame is likewise mostly a lightly freckled gray color but there are hints of the original color case - hardening still visible on the protected areas under the recoil shield. The trigger guard and gripstrap have traces of silver remaining (now turned a dark blue - black patina) with some mild freckling and pitting along the backstrap and trigger guard bow. The trigger has quite a bit of the original lustrous nitre blue remaining and the walnut grip, which is worn around the butt with scattered light and moderate handling marks, is deeply stamped, "L.C. / D / 57" on the left side. The lock - up is tight and the mechanism functions flawlessly. This is a fantastic Lower Canada Model 1851 Navy that has a lot of character but is still in fine overall condition; a great gun to add to a collection of fine Colts. Antique
