Nearly all these Colt Navy Model 1851s made during the Civil War saw service in the War, purchased on the open market by the US Army and Navy, or purchased directly by the states to arm the troops they raised. According to the Springfield Research Service letter that goes with the Colt Navy revolver, this one was issued to a trooper in Company M, Tenth Michigan Cavalry.
The Tenth Michigan Cavalry was formed in 1863 and served in Tennessee with a few excursions into Virginia and North Carolina. I will include the original letter from Springfield Research Service (SRS) with this Colt Navy. I did not pay the additional fee to SRS to have the archive records searched to determine a particular trooper but you can do that if you are the successful bidder.
The serial number, 141987, is matching on all parts of the gun, except the wedge which is not numbered. This gun was refinished at some time in the past, the barrel address is clear, and all serials are clear, except the cylinder which has no scene left, but does have faintly the last digits of the serial. The wood stocks fit well; they do not and should not have any cartouche – these wartime Colt Navies were purchased on the open market, and not made on military contract.
The mechanics work well, and the barrel rifling is better than you usually see in these black powder percussion Colts.

I will ship outside of the US, but it is not possible to fully insure items once they are outside of the U.S. postal system...but if the buyer accepts this responsibility of possible damage or loss, and if he checks his Customs laws and is legal to import this particular antique weapon, then I MAY ship outside the USA, depending on the country involved. I know the federal laws about shipping antiques, and will follow them always...but you must make sure that it is legal for you where you live to receive and possess the item you want to buy. Please e-mail for any unclear terms.
