The 1851 cap and ball revolver was a favorite during American Civil War, and even after cartridge revolvers came out, it remained a staple of the gunfighter's arsenal. This Polished Nickel and Gold M1851 Navy Revolver recreates that well-loved firearm. Such was the popularity of the M1851 Navy revolver that even well-known figures, like General Robert E. Lee and noted outlaw John Henry 'Doc' Holliday were said to use one! This particular model is based on Colt's first run of the pistol, as it features a cylinder that is engraved with the Battle of Campeche, a victory won by the Texas Navy. Originally, Colt engraved this image onto the cylinder as a sign of appreciation, as Texas' purchase of this revolver in large quantities was Colt's first major success in the gun trade. The barrel and frame are further decorated with rich scrollwork patterns. The pistols finish is also quite distinctive, as it features a two-toned finish of polished nickel frame accented by a gold cylinder, shell ejector, hammer, and trigger. The grip is faux ivory, which further appeals to the elegant look of this impressive pistol. It is made entirely from synthetic and metallic parts, and it features a working action and shell ejector, which adds a sense of realism to this replica pistol that is hard to beat. Being a replica, this pistol cannot be modified or made to fire live rounds, which helps to make it incredibly safe, as well. It is a collector's classic, that much is to be sure, and gun enthusiasts of all ages and sizes who love the Civil War and its arms are sure to fall in love with this Polished Nickel and Gold M1851 Navy Revolver.
