I have a Colt Model 1851 Navy Revolver in pretty good condition. Any idea of how much it is worth? Thanks.

As a young man, in 1963 I sold a Patterson Colt Navy Revolver to a collector in Kansas City Kansas whose last name was Sutherland I believe. The firearm included a dagger that was released by a button on the frame. It was engraved with the number 1 on the cylinder. I was told by a collector at the time that it was the first in the series of these pistols made at the Patterson New Jersey plant. Has anyone ever encountered this weapon or another like it????

It’s great that more people are focusing on making better environmental choices. Plus technology is making it more economical now, and that’s what people really notice. Wind energy, solar power, hybrids and zap EV’s, our choices are good. There are now electric cars being sold everyday, you just plug it into a regular power outlet. When people test drive them they say it’s far more fun to drive an EV.

I have a Colt 1851 .36 caliber Navy Revolver which has the British Proof Marks and Battle scenes on the cyclinder but has the Colt New York address on the barrel. On the left side of the grip frame (under the grip), the name "John Mosby" is stamped into the metal which apparently done with single letter punches. My question is, could this have been John Mosby's personal revolver purchased before the Civil War? The revolver appears to be a Battlefield find and rebuild due to a slight overhang of the trigger guard from the revolver frame! So, do you think that the barrel was replaced with one with the New York address during the rebuild or could it have been assembled in Britain but made for the Southern States market?


Thanks...Frank

I have the rare 4" barrel 1851 Navy Colt that belonged to my G-G-G Grand D who fought in the Civil War, Confederate. My last name is Hunley, decendant of the makers and seamen of the CSS Hunley submarine. Fun suff!

I have a cap and ball revolver serial number 129733. It appears to be a model 1851, 36 calibre, with a 5&1/2 inch barrel. Some one has filed off the patient stamping. There is an 'S' stamped below the serial number. Is it a colt? No markings of Colt can be found.
The serial numbers all match and the sn on the cylinder is in a rectangle box.

I have a 1851 Navy Colt made under license by the American Muzzle Loading Revolver Co. (I think they extended the length of the barrel to acomodate the name). It has Belgian proof marks and was dredged up from the bottom of the Black sea near the Sinope, Turkey harbor.
Any information available would be appreciated.
