Late Civil War Rigdon&Ansley Colt Navy copy
Manufactured in Augusta, Georgia, at the time Confederate States of America - serial number 1581.
.36 cap and ball six-shot caliber, single action, ‘creeping’ loading lever.
This copy, made possible by the secession of the South during the American Civil War - effectively a big ‘fuck you’ to all northern patents, is in almost every ways similar to a Colt 1851 Navy. It has however twelve cylinder stops, allowing it to be carried safely, and its barrel isn’t fluted like a ‘51 Navy.
I like those confederate revolvers, they’re like regular Colts but with a bit more personality.
