1851 Colt Navy Revolver For Sale

The 1851 Colt Navy Revolver For Sale was a scaled up .36 caliber version of the 1849 Pocket Model. The handy, more powerful revolver immediately found a following among soldiers and civilians alike and was eventually adopted by both the U.S. and the British military. By the start of the Civil War, Colt had refined the Navy into a sleek, streamlined weapon with an improved loading lever. The 1861 Navy is often acclaimed as Colt’s most handsome pistol. Colt worked to perfect his cap and ball revolver, designing the 1860 Army around a lightweight frame, but chambered for the more powerful .44 caliber ball. The first models featured fluted cylinders, while later models incorporated a belted cylinder for added strength and a “creeping” loading lever for easier loading. The sleek 1860 Army is considered to be the ultimate combat handgun of the percussion era.

The 1851 Colt Navy Revolver For Sale most popular percussion revolver. Nearly a quarter million of the iconic.36 caliber six-shot model were produced between 1850 and 1873. The term “Navy” refers to the caliber of the revolver, not necessarily the branch of service. The.44 caliber revolvers are called “Army” and.36 caliber revolvers are called “Navy.” The 1851 Navy was used by a number of famous soldiers and lawmen as well as infamous outlaws in American history.

Though Colt’s original use for this pistol is not recorded, the revolver has traditionally been considered the mate to a gold-decorated Navy revolver preserved in the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, one of three gold-inlaid pistols Samuel Colt presented to Czar Nicholas I at Gatchina Palace on October 30, 1854. The Metropolitan Museum pistol’s serial number (20133) follows in sequence by two digits that of the Hermitage pistol (20131), and the two revolvers are embellished in a similar style.
