Gone South - Colt 1851 Navy Revolver For Palmetto Hussars

Our Price: sold

Gone South - Colt 1851 Navy Revolver For Palmetto Hussars. An historic, documented Colt 1851 Navy Revolver shipped the Charleston, South Carolina firm of Gravely and Pringle in January of 1861. It is a direct match by serial number to records in the Colt archives in Hartford, CT.

It was one of a shipment of 50 guns to the retail firm of Gravely and Pringle in Charleston and subsequently purchased to equip the cavalry company known as the 'Palmetto Hussars'. This unit originated in the low country between Charleston and Savannah. The unit was almost certainly a witness to the bombardment of Fort Sumter.

The revolver retains approximately 25% original cylinder scene and generous amounts of silver plating on the trigger guard and backstrap. All matching serial numbers. Wedge and arbor are not serialized. Grips are original, well fit and retain 40% original varnish.
