To ad even more confusion: I have a "44 caliber 1861 Navy Colt". Turns out it is an ASM 1860 Army with Navy grips. It was sold as a 44/'61 Navy on the box. I believe 1860 Armies could be ordered with the navy grips as a factory option.

I think the first 500 1860's had navy grips and fluted cylinders. These were sold to the Confederacy. Colt would do engraving and ivory grips but that was about it until they started offering different barrel lengths with the 1873's. There may have been grip frames changed after they left the factory.
