METROPOLITAN ARMS CO. NAVY MODEL PERCUSSION REVOLVER
Original Metropolitan Arms Co. .36 cal Navy Model Percussion Revolver with all matching serial numbers except for the wedge which is a modern replacement. When the Colt Factory was damaged by fire in 1864 the Metropolitan Arms Co. began to manufacture copies of Colt weapons. The Navy model is almost an exact duplicate of the M1851 Colt Navy. This example was cleaned sometime ago but starting to age back nicely. The Mechanics are in good working condition. The brass backstrap and trigger guard have a beautiful aged patina. The walnut grips are original and in great shape but have been replaced at some point. They look great and fit the gun but not perfect. The 7 1/2" barrel is full length and maker marked "Metropolitan Arms Co. New York". Still has its brass front sight intact. Original loading lever moves freely and is marked with serial number. Please see all photos.
