The Traditions 1851 Navy is an excellent reproduction of the Civil War era black powder revolver carried by officers and cavalry! Soldiers on both sides of the conflict relied on many different types of sidearms for short range and close quarters combat. The revolver was unique in that it had the ability to fire several rounds per minute before having to reload. The Colt 1851 Navy is a cap and ball revolver originally designed by Samuel Colt that's distinguished by its octagon barrel and lever style loader. It facilitated the expansion of the West and is commonly considered to be one of "Wild Bill" Hickok's favorite handguns!
