Civil War COLT 1861 POCKET NAVY .36 Cal. Revolver
Early, 1861 5-Shot Cap & Ball!
Here we present an antique Colt “Pocket Navy” Revolver, made in 1861 in Hartford, Connecticut. The Pocket Navy, or Pocket Model of Navy Caliber like the Model 1862 Police, was based upon improved steels and the rebated cylinder design first used on Colt's Model 1860 Army revolvers. It offered more fire power while still remaining the same size as the popular Model 1849 Pocket.
The success of the original Colt Model 1851 Navy provided the foundation for these small but potent revolvers. On the original 1851 Navy, the depiction on the cylinder scene was an engraved naval battle, whereas this model sports the stagecoach scene like that of the 1849 pocket.
This is a solid gun by Colt standards, and its low availability makes it a rare item today with only 19,000 total produced. These were guns that would have been found on both the battle front as well as the home front during the American Civil War.
The overall condition is very good. 60% of the blue finish remains with strong traces of silver finish on the brass frame. The markings are clear. The numbers match. Curiously, there is no number on the bottom of the grip. The walnut grip is in very good condition. The bore is in great shape, clean with sharp rifling. The action is excellent.
