    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 1585. A scarce Colt 1851 Navy Percussion revolver as carried during the American Civil War 1861-1865. Manufactured in 1863. While the sixteen-year-old Colt was serving as a seaman aboard the brig Corvo around 1830-1831, he observed the ship's wheel and the relationship of the various spokes to the center hub. This inspired him to make a wooden model of a revolving pistol. Although others had already experimented with revolvers, Colt's design was the first to automatically rotate the cylinder when the gun was cocked. After his return to the United States, he showed his model to his father, Christopher and to Henry L. Ellsworth, a friend of the elder Colt who was then serving as Commissioner at the U.S. Patent Office in Washington. Both men encouraged Samuel to continue with his work and to seek a patent for his design. At this point in his life, Colt had an idea but no money with which to proceed on his new career path. For the next four years, he worked the traveling show circuit as "Dr. Coult of Calcutta." His lectures and demonstration of nitrous oxide to crowds in the U.S. and Canada provided a source of capital, which was forwarded to gunsmiths who produced working versions of his firearms designs. The rest is history as shortly afterwards the name Samuel Colt was to forever become synonymous with the word revolver. Engraved on the top of the 7.5 inch barrel the makers name "ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK U.S. AMERICA". All matching serial numbers including the wedge. Overall length approx 13 inches. In very good condition with some original finish remaining and the cylinder scene still visible. Action in very crisp working order. This is the best example of this model revolver that we have for sale on our website today. Ref 1585. A nice addition to any collection. This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
