    not a Colt Navy

    Hi all,
    This was listed as a Colt Navy. It's obviously not. What does it look like though? Does it seem legit? Thanks!

    Is the SN 2435 or 24351. Per the Colt SN look up here are some possibilities.

    Those aren't Colt style numbers, nor where they would be stamped. Are there any numbers on the bottom of frame, bbl lug, TG, or BS? Is there any bbl address? Looks kinda like a '49 pocket. My guess, A brevett.

    Brass frame, so for sure not a Colt. Brevett? Confederate copy?

    Best regards,
    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    .36 cal, dragoon style barrel, brass frame = Griswold and Gunnison.

    Probably an aged (defarbed) Griswold and Gunnison copy imported by by EMF.

    EMF is an importer of, primarily, Pietta guns. I have a Pietta G&G from them.

    I sure looks like a Griswold & Gunnison but the chances of finding a real G&G being sold as a near relic 1851 Navy for relic prices is infinitesimally small. With how weird that grip shape is it does not match any repro that I've ever seen so it's either the real deal or a good fake. Not real sure but I think a real G&G would have twisted iron barrel and cylinder and bronze, not brass, frame.
