1851 Colt Navy
This non-firing replica revolver is modeled after the 1851 Colt Navy. This gun is similar to the guns that Rooster Cogburn carried in the 2010 version of True Grit. (His two Navy sixes). However, his guns had the blued finish, whereas this replica has the silver engraved finish.
For a gun that looks similar in finish to Rooster Cogburn's Navy Sixes, check out the Griswold & Gunnison. The major difference is that the barrel is cylindrical, rather than octagonal.
This famous civil war revolver was used extensively throughout the War Between the States by both Union and Confederate troops. It's 7.5" octagonal barrel and strong frame made for a reliable, handsome sidearm. The barrel and frame of this replica gun feature elegant scroll engraving while the cylinder is engraved with tall sailing ships. This model gun features realistic looking replica ivory grips.
