    Metropolitan navy

    Is the metropolitan navy a desireable revolver from a collector's perspective. They seem priced under colts, and rarer than the 1851 colt navy in terms of numbers made. Any insight would be appreciated.

    People collect them. There is a website dedicated to the Bacon - Manhattan - Nepperhan complex.

    I think the metropolitan is a different make from the three makers named above.

    You are correct, the Metropolitan is a different manufacturers. Sorry, my bad. I did find one for sale for $1,600 but I don't know if that's a good, bad or fair price.
