A scarce London Colt model 1851 .36 calibre Navy Percussion revolver, the barrel retaining much of it's original London blued finish. This Colt Model 1851 navy revolver was supplied by Samuel Colt’s London factory in 1854, this was the only other Colt factory outside the United States of America. Colt received many famous visitors and would personally give them a guided tour. They included Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert and the famous author Charles Dickens. Dickens was very impressed by the factory and working conditions and stated "It is the only place in England where one can see the complete manufacture of a pistol, from dirty pieces of timber and rough bars of cast steel, till it is fit for the gunsmiths case". Dickens was even invited to test one of Colt's .36 cal revolvers. His opinion was "After a little practice, I find that a mere novice may, with one hand, discharge the six rounds as rapidly as the eye can wink". Colt's revolvers were sold mostly in the United States of America as well as being retailed in London England. This is one of the London Colt Navy revolvers that were so popular with British officers serving in the Crimean War during the period 1853-1856. As this example was supplied in 1854 it is more than likely that this revolver saw use in the Crimean war. Engraved on the top of the 7.5 octagonal barrel with the words "ADDRESS COL COLT LONDON". Stamped with British London proof marks to the side of frame and six proof marks to the cylinder. The cylinder scene still clearly visible. All matching serial numbers except the wedge. Length approx 13 inches. Crisp working action. Small damage to the bottom of one wood grip (see photo), otherwise in excellent condition overall. This is a fine example of a rare Colt 1851 London Navy revolver. Ref 1170. This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
