It is a commercial Colt New Navy. The Model 1892/1894/1895/1896/1901/1903 terminology really applied only to the Army contract guns. The civilian models changed when the military revolvers did, but Colt never gave them new names or model numbers.

The .41 caliber guns were all commercial, as the military never used .41 caliber. Colt called the model the New Army & Navy but sold two versions, the Army and the Navy, differing only in the grips. That is the New Navy.

It is listed in the Blue Book as "Model 1892 'New Army & Navy' (2nd Issue)."
