Colt’s 1851 Navy revolver was one of the authentic classics that cemented the Hartford, Connecticut gun maker’s reputation. These 7.5-inch barrel cap-and-ball beauties were made for almost a quarter century until 1873 and used extensively during the Civil War and by soldiers and explorers far beyond. Now, Cimarron Firearms is offering their reproduction “Percussion Peacemaker” six-shooter .36 caliber pistols for an MSRP of $422.50.
Here’s their press release:
