Nearly all these Colt Navy Model 1851s made during the Civil War saw service in the War, purchased on the open market by the US Army and Navy, or directly by the states to arm the troops raised by the states.
This Colt’s serial number, 141050, is matching on all parts of the gun, except for the wedge, which has no serial stamped on it at all, and the cylinder, which has been cleaned and has no serial or other markings on it. The barrel address is clear.
The wood grips fit fully and well, and have no cracks or chips in them. Someone carved “COLT” on each side, and also carved the playing card suit symbols for Clubs, Spades, Hearts and Diamonds. Collectors call this sort of post-war decoration “bunkhouse carving” and you see it most often on early Colt Single Action cartridge revolvers and percussion revolvers such as this Colt Navy which were used for many years after the Civil War.
The hammer has both the half cock and full cock, and the cylinder rotates and locks in place when you pull back the hammer.
This does not have any original finish, and the metal shows wear. Someone replaced two of the iron screws in guard and butt with brass screws with larger heads than the originals.
This gun is an American classic and could have been carried by either North or South. If you want only one percussion revolver in your collection to represent the War Between the States, you can’t do better than one of these start-of-the-Civil War Navies.

I will ship outside of the US, but it is not possible to fully insure items once they are outside of the U.S. postal system...but if the buyer accepts this responsibility of possible damage or loss, and if he checks his Customs laws and is legal to import this particular antique weapon, then I MAY ship outside the USA, depending on the country involved. I know the federal laws about shipping antiques, and will follow them always...but you must make sure that it is legal for you where you live to receive and possess the item you want to buy. Please e-mail for any unclear terms.
