The original 1851 revolver was as much a part of the trail to the West as the Americans who traveled it. It has a brass backstrap and trigger guard, and an octagonal barrel. Walnut grips. One of the most popular cap-and-ball pistols ever made. Not only a Civil War mainstay, it was the weapon of choice of Texas gunfighter John Wesley Hardin and other gunmen on both sides of the law. This replica boasts a color case-hardened frame, loading lever and hammer. Naval battle scene on the cylinder.
