    Colt 1851 Navy

    I have been looking for an 1851 Navy for a couple of years now, i found one from one of our members here, s/n 91694, year 1859, it is all matching numbers including the wedge and the grips's. you can make out some of the cylinder scene"s, the loading lever is also numbered, the action is very good. i have been looking on gun broker and international gins and at gun show's with no luck at all, most were in very bad condition and prices very high. i paid $1250 for this one.
    here's a few pic's. hope they turn out OK.

    The gun looks OK to me. At that price ($1250) you may have gotten a bargain.

    I would pay that price for it. Nice score. Are you going to shoot it?

    I think it would be safe to shoot, but i will never do it, i bought it just to handle and look at and wonder about it's history.

    I sold one in worse condition than that for $1700. You made a good deal.

    Hey Iboos.....aren't you glad you got the real deal? I love the way an "original" Navy looks and feels. It's quite a piece of history that you can hold in your hand.

    Congratulations! Nice revolver. I think you did great on this one!
