I'l be the first to admit im just fishing here , i have no REAL knowledge of what i have. I have read its worth a thousand dollars back in Japan? Its really a neat gun and feels like the real deal in hand. The grips wile they stay on just fine will come off if you pull on em , i can see a little glue has let go but i see no reason to re glue em , makes disassembly much easier this way. This replica gun contains the colored markings required by law, including a permanently attached orange plug.
The Old Frontier Navy - The gun is usually called the MGC Colt 1851 Navy. The gun is basically a cap gun, but its limited production has given it a bit of value. PLEASE STUDY THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. THIS RARE COLLECTIBLE IS IN FANTASTIC VINTAGE CONDITION.MEASURES 13 INCHES IN LENGTH. THIS JAPAN VERSION OF "OLD FRONTIER NAVY REVOLVER" (1851 NAVY COLT) WAS FIRST PRODUCED IN 1967 AND IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT PRODUCTION ENDED IN THE EARLY 1970's. THIS REPLICA REVOLVER IS ALL METAL EXCEPT FOR THE PLASTIC "WOOD" GRIPS. THE REVOLVER WEIGHS A LITTLE OVER 2 POUNDS 5 OUNCES. OPEN THE TRIGGER TO ITS FIRST POSITION AND YOU CAN ROTATE THE CYLINDER. OPEN IT ALL THE WAY AND IT IS COCKED BUT OF COURSE, THERE IS NO WAY TO MAKE THIS REVOLVER FUNCTIONAL. LOOKING INSIDE THE FRONT OF THE BARREL AND YOU WILL FIND THAT THE BARREL IS FULLY BLOCKED 1 1/4 INCHES DOWN INSIDE THE BARREL. THE CHAMBER CYLINDER IS ALSO BLOCKED. THE ONLY MARKINGS ON THIS REVOLVER IS "OLD FRONTIER NAVY REVOLVER" and "JAPAN" and the SERIAL NUMBER "04158" WHICH COULD POSSIBLY TELL US THE MANUFACTURING DATE.
