An exceptionally scarce Colt 1851 Navy Percussion revolver in .36 calibre, as used during the American Civil War 1861-1865. 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 hand rotated 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 travelling 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 revolver. Engraved on the top of the 7.5 inch barrel the makers name "ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK U.S. AMERICA". Matching serial numbers except the wedge. Overall length approx 13 inches. In very good condition, retaining APPROX 70% original finish, the cylinder scene still clearly 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 1876.This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only.
