Widely used during the Civil War and Expansion of the West, this cap-and-ball revolver continued to grow in popularity even after cartridge revolvers were introduced. This particular model is based on Colt's first run of the pistol. This beautiful replica is historically accurate in size and weight, featuring an octagonal 7 1/2" barrel, working action, faux ivory grips, and an exquisite polished finish. The frame is engraved with elegant scrollwork while the cylinder is emblazoned with the Battle of Campeche, a victory won by the Texas Navy. Being a replica, this pistol cannot be modified or made to fire live rounds. This classics piece is a dream to handle and one of the finest replicas in the world today.
