Uberti Navy, Army & Police

The Navy, Pocket Navy, Army, and Police Black Powder Revolvers all evolved between 1851 and 1862 from one model originally designed by Colt. By the start of the Civil War, Colt had refined the Navy into a sleek, streamlined weapon with an improved loading lever. The 1861 Navy is often acclaimed as Colt’s most handsome pistol.


1851 Navy 

The 1851 was hugely popular with soldiers and civilians alike, and was eventually adopted by the US and the British militaries. Wild Bill Hickok carried a pair of 1851 Navies, with these pistols he established the reputation of the most feared pistol arrow in the old west. 

1861 Navy

Colt redesigned the Navy pistol, making it the 1861 which was a completely new design with a streamlined barrel, side contours and an improved loading lever. 

1860 Army
Samuel Colt designed the revolver with a fluted cylinder for lightness (early model), a smoothly contoured 8” barrel and an improved creeping loading lever that increased leverage and provided easier loading. A belted cylinder model was introduced later. 

1862 Police
This model is a miniature of the 1860 Army, with fluted cylinder, streamlined round barrel and “creeping” loading lever. 

1862 Pocket Navy
The 1862 Pocket Navy retains the octagon barrel and hinged loading lever of the 1851 Navy. The Pocket and Police were the last two muzzle loading models to be produced by Colt.

Features

Black powder load seating

To seat black powder loads in the cylinder of the single-action army and navy revolvers, the loading lever is freed from the latch and pulled downward. This causes the ramrod to move through the frame and ram the load home.

Percussion cap seating

In 1861 Navy Revolvers, the frame cutout in the rear of the cylinder allows easy access to the nipples for seating percussion caps.

Uberti 1851 and 1861 Navy Black Powder Revolvers

The 1851 Navy was a scaled-up, .36 calibre version of the 1849 Pocket Navy. The handy, more powerful Colt revolvers immediately found a following among soldiers and civilians alike, and was eventually adopted by both the US and British Military.
