Description for Item # 388850676 

Magnificent Cased Colt 1851 Navy, London Address, Mfg. 1855, and another 1851 Navy, New York Address, also Mfg. 1855. Stock #’s ACR-CLHEE2, & ACR-CLHEE1. Serial #’s 417xx, and 417xx. One of over a thousand Antique and Modern Collectible firearms, including Military, Sporting, Custom and Tactical guns, as well as Edged Weapons and Militaria we have for sale at Jackson Armory (see our other listings), for the very Advanced Collector, this a magnificent pair of Museum-Grade Pre – Civil War Colt 1851 Navy .36 caliber Revolvers. One is a London Colt, the other has Colt’s New York address, and both guns were manufactured in 1855. These guns may be purchased individually (without the heavy wooden, felt-lined case, which we will sell for $300.), or if you purchase both guns, the case will be included at no charge. The most desirable of the pair is, obviously, the London Colt. The pistol is all-matching, dating to 1855, as mentioned, it has about 90% of the original blue finish remaining as well as about 90% of the original casehardening on the receiver, the grips are original as well. The pistol does have holster wear on the barrel, as well as some scratching on both sides of the barrel near the wedge, The cylinder scene is still crisp, however there is quite a lot of wear on the cylinder. All the original Colt markings as well as the British proofs are crisp and legible. The bore is crisp, as well, with visible rifling, all of the action cocks are there and it locks up tightly. Overall, the London Colt rates about 90%. This gun may be purchased separately for $14000.00. Now let’s discuss the New York Colt. All-matching and dating to 1855, the pistol retains 95% of the original finish, the cylinder scene is about 95-98%, and the receiver is shiny, the grips are original. As with the London Colt, this gun is tight with all cylinder cocks and a very crisp bore, all markings are crisp as well, this is a 90-95% gun….however…..we must discuss the finish – the finish has a greenish cast to it when observed closely – there are 2 theories on the finish, first, it simply may be a very old British-style professional re-finish. The more optimistic theory about the finish is that it is original, but sub-standard, and thus the gun was rejected for Military sales, and sold on the Civilian market – you may, of course, believe what you want, but due to the finish, we are selling this gun individually for $5000.00. You may purchase both guns for $19000.00 and, as mentioned, we will include the $300. Wooden case at no charge. These are both magnificent examples of the Colt 1851 Navy, they are museum-grade firearms that will enhance a very advanced collection. These guns do not come with anything not mentioned herein. These are antique firearms, if it is legal for you to own these weapons where you live, and with a copy of your Drivers License, establishing that you are over age 21, we can ship the guns direct to your home, an FFL License is not required. *All ITEMS ONLINE ARE SUBJECT TO PRIOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL STORE.**NO LAY-AWAYS**DO NOT BID if YOU are not the PERSON LISTED on the GUN BROKER account.**SALES OF MODERN GUNS TO CALIFORNIA will be shipped via an affiliated Texas FFL that is CA-DOJ Registered and carry an ADDITIONAL $75.00 CHARGE**Please call with specific questions BEFORE bidding on an item (214.363.2767) or email us (info@jacksonarmory.com).** YOUR BID is a LEGAL CONTRACT to purchase any item you bid upon.**Please do not send us an email regarding this item unless you have a sincere interest in purchasing the item.
