Revolver Photo Help
« on: May 01, 2020, 08:58:20 AM »
I recently came across this photo in my photo folder and have no idea where I got it. So naturally I dont have any information on the pistols it shows. Can someone help me identify all of these please?

Off the top of my head, I think they are,....

1. Colt Model 1851 Navy
2. ?
3. ?
4. Remington-Beal Model 1858 New Army
5. Colt Model 1861 Navy

I think that is right (or at least close).  :laffing

Does anyone make a replica of either of those? I think I may have found a c&b revolver I'd like to own!

I honestly don't know if they do or not??? Sorry...

I'd like to know if anyone makes a "Beals" style loading lever that would replace the current loading lever in the Model 1858 Remington,,, as I find that Beal's Model loading lever way more appealing for the looks of those revolvers...

I don't think anyone makes repros of the Beals or the Savage.

Too bad, I have long wished for a copy of both, especially the Savage.

When searching online, you might want to keep in mind that they are also known as a Savage-North and a Savage Navy revolvers.

Could the bottom one be the 1860 Army Colt?  I ask because the barrel looks a little longer than the Navy at the top.

They were available in different barrel lengths, so the surest way is to know the caliber.

.36 = Navy Model
.44 = Army Model

The revolver pictured at the bottom has the "creeping" loading lever.  It first appeared on the 1860 Army (.44 cal).  Next was the 1861 Navy (.36 cal), and the final appearance was the 1862 Police (.36 cal.).
I really liked the 1860 because the grips are big enough for me to get my hand onto.  But for ease of use, the 1862 with the 4 1/2" barrel is the best balanced.
