GR79-0421-5111, Colt M-1851 Navy altered for the Western Frontier. It is marked with US on frame with trace of cartouche visible on one grip. This gun has all the hallmarks of a gun that was stolen by a deserter. The frame address has been decorated with an oval of tapped in holes that OBLITERATE the US stamp on the frame. The US was often chiseled off or obliterated on guns that deserters use or guns that Indians picked up. This gun has had the barrel and rammer professionally cut back. Often done by cowboys in the west to allow the pistol to be drawn without the barrel hanging up on the holster. The barrel was cut to 61/4 inches and cut at the muzzle. Flashes of blue in protected places and traces of case color on frame and lever. The gun shows 80% original scene with crisp action #60xxx matching on bottom of gun, cylinder and lever. The wedge has no number. The grips were lightly cleaned. The bore is bright, shiny and crisply rifled. There are a few very fine scattered spots in bore. Better than average. Very good ++ bore. If you want a gun that could have been used in the War and then potentially carried on the cattle drives to Kansas or with Buffalo Hunters on the frontier, here is a prime example of a gun that I shows that type of history. For me this is a neat old gun, I wish I knew where it has been and the stories behind it.
