Vintage 1960's Colt 1851 Navy Black Powder Revolver Replica - Non-Firing
This is a NON-FIRING replica for display purposes. It cannot be made to fire.
This is dated to the 1960's. It comes in the frame shown but can be removed to examine. It is a single action revolver and the action works as it is supposed to. The packing rod works too. The hammer pulls out and the cylinder automatically advances.
The revolver is as it was when made. It was made to look a bit old.
Revolver is approximately 13" long. Frame is 22 1/4" by 12 1/2"
This replica was made in Japan in the 1960's when they used to make super fine replicas.
The wood frame is very nice for display. The end of the lower support bracket broke off many years ago but there is a hidden wire to hold the gun so that it will not fall when hung on the wall.
This was favored by Confederate Troops during the Civil War.
THE revolver of the West, as carried by Wild Bill Hickok, "Doc" Holliday, Robert E. Lee and gold prospectors, frontiersmen, bandits and lawmen of all stripes! Boasting a number of improvements over the Dragoon Revolver on which it was modeled - including a lighter weight and simplified mechanics - the 1851 Navy became Colt's first real "hit" in the civilian market.
