An icon! Navy Colt 1851 – Caliber 36 – Single action – six bullets – Completely numbered – even the drum and the charging frame are original from the day of production.
It´s very unusual to have such a fine and even patina without renovations or improvements. This indicate that the owners of this have understand the importance of weapon care. Here you buy a piece of US history from the time when the Civil war was on it´s peak.
Mechanically it work like a new Rolex – These are the ingredients that make me make me shiver! You can buy a Colt that looks very good but then it is blued and restored. I have had all parts apart and seen that it is perfectly ok and that everything fits like it should do.
The Piston of Walnut – brass and steel in perfect harmony makes this to one of the Old west to live again!
