    I decided that after shooting the 1860 I would go ahead and 'pull the trigger' on a 51 Navy. Thanks to a forum member I am now the proud owner of a 2nd gen Colt Navy. I do believe that I like the feel of the Army style grips better with the long barrel Colts.

    I wonder if the fact that officers in the civil war were issued with Colt 1851 Navy revolvers, while cavalrymen, were issued with Colt 1860 Army revolvers, is of real significance regarding their overall efficiency ?
