    Howdy to you all, new from B.C.

    I have a number of New un fired Colt Patent C & B Rev, having a issue with the 1861 Navy wedge, it will not push threw completely and stops hard up against the barrel opening entrance on the opposite side where there is a slight bevel to assist the wedge and guide it threw to the other side so that the spring will click home and retain the wedge in its correct place, it may have been possible that it had left the factory in this incorrectly fitted state at Hartford, Connecticut, U.S. possible but I do have doubt, all numbers are matching,I did notice the wedge extension on the left side of the barrel when I opened the signature Sam Colt box on receiving the Rev, if a member could provide me with the tolerance gap between the cylinder and barrel that are Colt specs for this Navy it will be much appreciated,will check it against the other Colts of various models that I have, Colt specs only and not Pedersoli, Uberti, Pietta ore any other knock off,I am new to C&B so good positive assistance is much appreciated as I have much to learn, have learnt much from the duelist1954,Blackie Thomas and Cap&Ball of Europe very good videos , thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to the Colt Forum.

    I see you have found and posted your query on our percussion pistol forum. As noted there, you may be well served to post photos of your Colt for the group to evaluate.

    Thanks for joining us!

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
