Open Top Revolver - 1851 Navy Nickel Finish

Although it appears to be a conversion, the 1871-72 Open Top model was Colt’s® first revolver specifically manufactured to fire a centerfire cartridge by incorporating the loading gate in the frame. Since Colt® did not use percussion revolver parts, the revolver was manufactured as an entirely new model, first with Navy-sized grips, later with Army-sized grips. Open Top revolvers come with a forged steel frame, nickel finish parts, round barrel with front blade sight, modern ejector rod, and a rear sight notch on the rear of the barrel. The Navy version includes a brass backstrap and triggerguard with a smaller Navy grip. Inventory status may not reflect exact SKUs, please contact us to ensure immediate availability. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.
