Percussion Colts are kings in the world of fine arms collecting, so when the only known 1851 Navy with a gold plated grip strap came to auction, sparks were bound to fly.
Not only gilt, but in unfathomable condition, with early factory engraving, deluxe burl walnut grips, and cased with a full complement of accessories. This is truly a Colt for an advanced collection.
