  1. Colt Percussion Revolvers
    Hello there, new to the forum here. I picked up this 1851 Navy in a collection, assumed it to be a reproduction/etc. However the serial numbers are of an 1862 production, so just wanted to see what you guys think it is. Cylinder would have to be a replacement, as there are no markings at all on...

    I am new here so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place. I've got a 61 Navy, manufactured in 1861 (3 dig serial number) with its original holster. Can anyone suggest how I can get a value for it? Help is much appreciated.
  6. Colt Percussion Revolvers
    I bought a few of these when they came out about 20 yrs ago. Supposedly the S/N ranges were supposed to pick up where the 2nd Gen left off. Was looking at the S/N on my 1851 Navy, and it matched up with a 1st Gen made in 1853. Interesting coincidence! I've seen the flaking/pitting of the plating...

We are trying to identify the marking at the top of the backstrap...

    Just looking for some discussion and information regarding an 1861 Navy Colt that was plowed up near San Angelo, TX (former location of Ft. Concho in the 1800s). The pistol was plowed up in the late 90's. The hammer is down on the Patent No. line and there are six loaded chamber with caps...

    So, I picked up a New Army & Navy as a "parts gun" for pretty much nothing. It needs a couple small parts replaced that won't be too difficult to make myself, but the real problem seems to be that when the trigger is released the hand drags down across the ratchet and the cylinder rotates with...

    I was recently given an Italian Colt 1851 (rounded trigger guard) and am clueless as to whether or not this firearm is suitable for fire or even the specifics of use. Along the right hand side of the octagonal barrel it says, "XX9 CAL .36 NAVY MODEL MADE IN ITALY, whereas on the left it says...
