In new in the box condition, we have a rarely seen very early production 2nd Generation Colt’s Model 1851 Navy Revolver.  This .36 caliber Cap’n Ball Revolver was Colts most popular revolver in the last half of the 1800’s.  It was so immensely popular that Colt re-introduced it in the early 1970’s and many were sold, especially to civil war buffs.   Today this series has become highly collectible and they garner considerable prestige.   This is a non modern gun and can be shipped to anyone over the age of 18. This is the most desirable variant in the very early box, I am sure that many of you have seen these pistols in the later production big black boxes at gun shows but this predates that and is an extremely sought after early production example.  These early examples with the small early box are Very tough to locate.
