This fine Colt, sn41781 made in 1856, came to us as part of a two-gun set in a fine walnut case. The second gun is an equally fine Colt 1851 Old Model Navy with a London address and a serial number of 41786, only 5 digits apart. The guns will be sold separately or together to facilitate a speedy sale. The case will be part of the sale of either gun or will go with the pair if sold together to the same party. This New York addressed gun is in superb factory original condition with all matching parts. The 7 ½”, .36 caliber barrel retain 97% factory blue that is the rich, dark blue you hope to find on such a revolver. The bore is bright and shiny, rifling crisp and sharp, with a few scattered patches of minor pitting. The cylinder retains all the sharp, clear engraving, matching serial number, 98% factory blue. The frame retains about 60% fading factory case color, the rammer 95% vivid factory case color, and hammer has traces of case color. The mechanics are crisp with strong springs, solid cylinder lock up, and all pins remaining as new on the cylinder. The original factory walnut grips have no cracks or repairs and most all of the original varnish remaining and are serial numbered to the gun. This is an incredible find and a remarkable Colt 1851 with strong condition. The grip straps have never been polished or cleaned and are only slightly tarnished. The screws are all in excellent shape. The condition of this gun is collector quality and rarely seen on a Colt that has had 161 birthdays. A true investment quality Colt revolver. If you are able to buy both and keep them in the more modern made French fit box you would have a most impressive pair of Colt 1851 Navy pistols, one from each of the period manufacturer’s address’ and both in superb factory original condition. Thanks for looking and don’t let this Colt get away! Better yet, buy them both! Thanks for looking.
