Colt 1851 Navy Robert E Lee Commemorative Revolver

£895.00

Colt 1851 Navy Robert E Lee Commemorative Revolver

The Colt 1851 Navy Robert E Lee Commemorative Revolver was a ‘C’ Series issue by Colt’s Manufacturing Company, Inc.  4,750 were manufactured in 1971 only. It had a standard ‘C’ Series Royal Blue finish with a silver plated backstrap and ‘ROBERT E. LEE COMMEMORATIVE NINETEEN SEVENTY ONE’ engraved on the left side barrel flat. The top barrel flat is stamped “Address SamL Colt New-York City”. The cylinder is etched with the naval battle scene commemorating the battle of Campeche, and is inscribed, “Colt’s Patent No. 3915 / Engraved by W L Ormsby, New York”, and “Engaged 16 May 1843.”

It was issued in a walnut presentation case with gray velvet lining, a James Dixon and Sons ‘stand of flags’ style bag powder flask, a nipple wrench, a dual cavity bullet mold and cap tin.

These revolvers were manufactured in accordance with Colt´s strict specifications and quality control. Additionally, Colt´s performed final inspection for all models. All percussion models manufactured from 1971 through 1982, either by Colt or its subcontractor, are regarded as authentic Colt pistols and not Italian replicas.

The example we have here is numbered 1050, and to the best of my knowledge, it has never been fired.  Complete with all the parts and case, it is in pristine condition and a very collectable item.
