    1851 Navy Mystery Marking

    Colt-Navy-Mystery-Number.jpg

    New to the forum, and new owner of a 4th model Navy SN 1115XX. Is anyone able to explain to me (or speculate at least) what this numeral "2" at the bottom of the barrel assembly represents?

    Colt inspectors occasionally used numbers as well as letters. I too have a 1851 Colt Navy with a number two stamped on the left side of the barrel lug.
