Few handguns can match the storied history of the 1851 Confederate Navy .44-cal. Black-Powder Revolver. It was so popular and performed so well that it stayed in production until 1873, by which time more than a quarter million had been made. Reliable, fast handling and accurate in the hands of an experienced shooter, this handgun benefited by weighing 1-2 lbs. less than dragoon-style six shooters, their main competition when they were first introduced. Wild Bill Hickok, Doc Holliday, General Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis are among the historical figures who owned a Colt 1851. Made with a brass frame to conserve the South's limited supply of steel. Although designated as a navy pistol, it saw heavy use among Army officers who favored .44-cal. firepower. Octagonal barrel and brass trigger guard. Comes with a spare cylinder that allows you to reload quickly.Barrel length: 7.5".OAL: 13.24".Wt.: 2 lbs. 9 oz.Capacity: 6 rounds.Grip: Walnut.Finish: Blued.
