The Colt 1851 Navy is a cap and ball revolver produced from 1850 to 1873. This single-action six-shooter is most commonly chambered in 36 caliber, also known as Naval Caliber. Colt also produced a small number of Navy revolvers in 34 caliber, while just five models were produced in 40 caliber for testing by the U.S. Navy Bureau of Ordnance. With a size suitable for carrying in a belt holster, the 1851 Navy became popular among American military and civilians alike and also used by military forces across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
