1851 Navy Revolver. .44cal
Produced from 1851 - 1872, the '51 Navy is the most famous of the cap and ball era for good reason: perfectly balanced, precise aim, and dependable. This gun symbolizes the days of the stagecoach, the Pony Express and the Civil War. Union Army soldiers relied on many different types of sidearms for short range and close quarters combat. The revolver was unique in that it had the ability to fire several rounds per minute before having to reload. Revolvers were typically issued to officers and mounted soldiers, however some were purchased privately or found on the battlefield by infantrymen.
Distinguished by its octagon barrel and lever style loader, the 1851 helped to begin both the expansion of the West and the Civil War. The 1851 Navy is commonly considered to be one of gunfighter â€œWild Billâ€ Hickokâ€™s favorite handguns. The British government licensed the manufacturing rights and produced what is commonly known as the London Model. This revolver features an 7.375" octagonal barrel, brass frame, brass guard, and walnut grip. It is available in .44 caliber, weighs 2.5 lbs., and is 13.5" in length.
