This is a beautiful Model 1851 Colt Navy revolver. It is a .36 caliber revolver with 6 shot cylinder, a 7 ½” octagonal barrel with attached loading lever, brass frame with round trigger guard. Serial numbers for this model began at 4200 and ended around number 85000. This specimen is serial number 75973 which was manufactured in mid-1857. The top of the barrel is marked “ADDRESS SAML COLT HARTFORD, CT” and the left side of the frame is marked COLTS / PATENT. The cylinder features much of the engraved cylinder scene of a battle between the Texas Navy and the Mexican Navy, and is also marked COLTS PATENT and the complete serial number. All cones are in good shape. Safety pins are in good shape. The grip straps were made of brass plated with silver. Some of the plating remains. The original grips are one piece varnished walnut. Colt stamped the serial number on the barrel, frame, cylinder, loading lever, trigger guard, back strap, and wedge and they all match.  Hammer and trigger operate well, however cylinder does not advance.  Gun metal is clean and has a nice smooth pewter patina. Brass remains plated in places but is dull yellow where plating is worn away.  Wood shows some wear at the butt.

An original and complete model 1851 Colt revolver in good condition.  [jet]
