Product Description

A well worn, but original US Samuel Colt Model 1861 Navy cap & ball .36-caliber revolver, in fair condition.

The pistol is a six-shot, single-action percussion weapon produced by Colt's Manufacturing Company from 1861 until 1873. Given the serial number 35741, it dates from about 1871. It incorporated the "creeping" or ratchet loading lever and round barrel of the .44-caliber Army Model of 1860. Although the guns normally have the 7.5 inches barrel, this example has been made with a shorter 5.5 inches. Like its forerunner, the Colt 1851 Navy Revolver, it saw widespread use in the American Civil War and on the American Western frontier, though far fewer were produced.

The revolver’s ratchet system is not working at present and the loading lever has had a small repair. The barrel has just the remnants of the stamped ADDRESS COL. SAML. COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA and all that is discernible is AMERICA.
