Uberti-61-Navy-engr-b-and-CC-stock-22-1.JPG

This is a 47% scale miniature Colt 1861 Navy revolver, engraved, with detachable shoulder stock.   Fully functional, but non-firing.  This is very similar to the United States Historical Society "Presidential Edition" which is fully engraved, including the shoulder stock fittings and buttplate, but where the USHS version is fully silver plated, this one is in a blue and case colored finish. It's possible that this may be a USHS prototype, or a special order piece.  The barrel, barrel wedge, cylinder, nipples, screws, triggerguard, backstrap, trigger, lanyard ring, and stock locking screws are all blue. The frame, loading lever, and hammer are case colored.  The stock yoke and buttplate are brass with a pleasing mellow patina. Serial # 22 stamped into the barrel, frame, backstrap, cylinder, and stock yoke.  Beautiful highly figured one piece grips and shoulder stock.  The the piece is in absolute mint condition.  A truly attractive piece and the only one like this that I have ever seen.  Includes a USHS "Classic Edition" glass topped case with etched Colt logo on the glass, French fit and lined in a blue/gray velour which is not original to the miniature, but does a great job of displaying and protecting it.
