Union Army soldiers 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.
Revolvers were typically issued to officers and mounted soldiers, however
some were purchased privately or found on the battlefield by infantrymen.
Distinguished by its octagon barrel and lever style loader, the 1851 helped
to begin both the expansion of the West and the Civil War. The 1851 Navy is
commonly considered to be one of gunfighter "Wild Bill" Hickok's favorite
handguns. The British government licensed the manufacturing rights and
produced what is commonly known as the London Model. This revolver features
