Here is a very nice version of an original Colt 1851, 3rd Model Navy Revolver in very good condition. One of the most popular pistols ever produced by Samuel Colt’s firm in Hartford, Connecticut was Colt’s Navy model, a premier medium caliber handgun. Colt designated the term “Navy” to imply the caliber (.36) of the weapon, as he did with its later and heavier companion, the Colt Model 1860 Army (.44 caliber).
Manufactured sometime in the fourth quarter of 1856, this martially-marked, handsome Model 1851 Navy revolver bears serial number #62941 and is a great example of a much carried personal sidearm used during the American Civil War. All serial numbers match including the wedge. This six-shot, .36 caliber, cap and ball percussion revolver specimen was one of over 215,000 such sidearms made and features an un-rebated cylinder with an 7½” long barrel. Has good mechanics and the roll engraved naval engagement scene of the Republic of Texas Navy and the Mexican Navy on the cylinder has approx. 50%+ remaining. All the nipples, are in a strong condition. Most of the cylinder pins are hammered down.
No original case colors remain on the three-screw frame but it does feature a strong “COLTS / PATENT / U.S.” stamping on the left side. All gun metal wears a smooth, dark gray patina overall. Octagonal barrel exhibits rounded edges and the muzzle shows even wear. Barrel address markings “ADDRESS SAM’L COLT NEW YORK CITY” are strong and sharp. Smooth, unvarnished grips are of one-piece walnut, have two government cartouches, that are faint.No silver wash on the brass trigger guard or back strap. Butt end of trigger guard shows evidence of multiple impacts around the serial number.
