c1870s Antique COLT Model 1861 NAVY RICHARDS-MASON Conversion .38 REVOLVER
SCARCE 1 of 2,200 Manufactured!
Here we present an antique Colt Model 1861 Navy Richards-Mason Conversion Revolver, manufactured in the mid-1870s. Only around 2,200 of these revolvers were manufactured around the mid-1870s as cartridge revolvers using percussion parts on hand and newly fabricated cartridge revolver components. They are generally numbered in the 100-3300 range like this revolver. It has a blade front sight and a hammer notch rear sight.
These were adopted by the US Navy in small numbers and would have been in holsters around the United States and the Frontier as a less expensive alternative to Colt’s iconic Single Action Army.
The overall condition is good. Gray patina. The numbers match with the exception of the unnumbered barrel wedge. The action is excellent. The bore is in great shape with sharp rifling. The grip is solid, showing use.
