1851 Engraved Navy Revolvers
State of the Gunmaker's Art
HISTORY: These fancy engraved Navy revolvers--based on the military-issue 1851 Navy--were presentation pieces given to high ranking military officers and government officials. Our non-firing replicas provide a dramatic illustration of the talents of the factory engravers of that period. Wild Bill Hickok's favorite pistols were a matched pair of silver plated, engraved 1851 Navy revolvers, with ivory grips, similar to the one above, presented to him by a Senator in recognition of his service as a Union Army scout during the Civil War.
#22-1040B - Silver-like engraved plating on barrel and cylinder, gold-like plating on trigger guard, textured simulated ivory grip engraved with the American Eagle.

#27-335 -- Wild Bill Hickock Framed Set
Featuring the 1851 Engraved Navy Revolver
This handsome framed set features a non-firing replica of an engraved 1851 Navy revolver that is very similar to the famous pair he carried for many years. Test the working loading and firing mechanisms of this fine replica yourself--it's mounted with our spring-loaded bullet hangers which allow it to be easily removed from and replaced on the frame. We've added a vintage photo of Wild Bill taken in 1873, and a U.S. Army hat pin to commemorate his service as a scout for the Union army during the Civil War and afterward on the western frontier. A brass identification plate completes the set.
