    ~ Well Engraved Manhattan Colt Navy Revolver .36 Cal And Holster ~


    This is an early piece made by the Manhattan Firearms Company and it comes with its period brown leather holster.

    The Manhattan Firearms Co. was established by a committee of businessmen in 1856 in preparation for the expiration of Colt revolver patents upcoming in 1857.

    The manufacturing process of the Manhattan Colt started in 1859 in Norwich, Connecticut being moved after a while in Newark, New Jersey.

    Before the production sized due to a lawsuit won by Colt about 80,000 units have been sold.

    Our example is serial numbered ‘13362’ on the butt frame, trigger guard, cylinder frame and barrel frame, just like a Colt made piece.

    The serial number indicates that this revolver is part of the second series (starting from early January 1860 up to September 1861) made by the company from which 10,000 examples were manufactured. The first series is serial numbered from 1 to 4,000.

    Series 1 to 6 were all 5 shot revolvers and chambered for the .36 cal ball cartridge.

    The cylinder is well engraved with scenes of the Indian wars and stamped ‘Patented Dec 27 1859’.

    The top of the octagonal barrel is stamped with the company’s name.

    The trigger frame and grip frame are made of gilded steel.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel is 6 ½ inches (16.5 cm long) and the overall length of the revolver is 12 inches (30.5 cm).

    The set weighs 940 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The revolver can be half cocked, cocked and fired with ease.

    The engraving has faded but, as shown in the pictures are still visible.

    The steel components have partially loss of gilt.

    The bluing has preserved on 90% of the metalwork.

    The inside of the rifled barrel and the cylinder remain in very good condition with minimum usage and rust free.

    The wooden grips have some age wear, minor scratches and the one on the right has a chip.

    The holster is partially worn but the leather remains soft.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
