Colt Model 1851 Navy percussion, cal 36. flayderman page 89, item 5B 055.  This one has the LONDON factory adres but is in fact built in New York with left over parts of London. Thse all had no London proofmarks and are found in high serial ranges, as this one Serial 196051, all matching including the wedge. It has an L stamped on the gripstrap, so was prepared to be shipped back to London but this never happened.

The bore is 100 % shiney and no pitting. Adress is perfect. The orig. grips retain 85 % varnish.  Barrel has 15 % orig. blue, cylinder all the scene. Remainder is medium brown patina.  Very tihgt, works perfect and super shooter. Rare variation of a colt navy.
