Ok guys I goy my 1851 Colt Navy in so look at it close and you will see it. Now I have another question what is more rare on a Colt Lighting Large Frame Half Octagon and round or Full Octagon cal.45-85-285 because I just ordered one that is a Half Octagon and round barrel
I'm looking at an early Model 1851, made in 1852. All looks correct except the wedge isn't numbered.
Would that be correct for an early model? Did Colt always number the wedge or was that a later change. Just curious.
