I got a new '51
I already had a few, but once again proving you can never have to many Navy Models
One question though, everything is rock solid tight; but the cylinder. When "pointing" the pistol at full cock, the cylinder is rock solid engaged with the bolt if you attempt to turn it right. However if lite pressure is applied, the cylinder can be rotated 1/8 of an inch or a little less to the left (against the direction of turn) Is this a problem? Not one of any other colt pattern pistol I've ever owned of shot do this.
Also the seller was mistaken, it is a pietta. But he bought it brand new, fired it five or six times; and didn't like it. So it was cleaned and placed in a display case until today, It looks basically new
