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.
Uberti’s 1861 Navy Civil Brass met a civilian demand for a medium-frame, light revolver.
Features & Highlights
Percussion Cap Seating
The frame cutout in the rear of the cylinder allows easy access to the nipples for seating percussion caps.
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.
