You have a good eye, my pics don't work either so I found one online. (that one happens to be a .36, you're right) But mine is a .44

This one I just finished, the third long rifle I've built. 40 calibre swamped barrel, Siler lock kit, Davis triggers and a fair piece of curly maple. This is my first attempt at engraving so it's just simple lines.

Preface: I am retired on a fixed income, and can only afford one pistol per year.

I went to the Pietta 1851 Navy .36 type pistols because of the interchangeability of parts. All repros shown below. The first three are original Pietta pistols from Cabela's. The rest are mix and match guns.

1851 Navy Second Model Squareback TG (even though the load-lever pivot screw enters from the left, which is not historically correct)



Griswold and Gunnison



1851 Navy 3rd/4th Model (depending upon TG size/shape)



Leech and Rigdon



Schneider and Glassick



My favorite 1851 Navy fantasy pistol: a Navy .36 Second Model Dragoon



Caveat: all six pistols were created from three original pistols just by swapping frames, barrels, and cylinders.

If Alessandro Pietta or his reps are monitoring, I believe there is a market for a Dance .36 based on an 1851 Navy .36 frame. I want one. The Dance .36 is historically correct. Pietta produces a Dance .44 on a modified 1851 frame (in which the water table is not cut for a rebated cylinder but is lowered) for the non-rebated Pietta cylinder that is much larger than a Pietta .36 Navy cylinder.

Sorry to get so off topic with your pic thread.

Here's mine.

Armi San Marcos Sheriff's model .36 cal.


My restored Uberti 1858 Remington with fluted .45 Colt cartridge conversion cylinder.


My Uberti 1858 carbine .44 cal.


My two nickel plated Pietta 1860's with stainless fluted cylinders. .44 cal.
They originally came with gold wash plated fluted cylinders, but the gold flakes off if you shoot them, so I replaced the cylinders with stainless fluted ones and replaced the gold hammers with case hardened ones.


My CVA, double set triggers, mountain rifle, .50 cal.

All navies are .36, the .44's are Italian fantasies and I never saw a .17 cap and ball before. I posted two navies and a G&G all .36. Those you posted are fantasy pieces too.

Yes. Thank you.

The mini one is a Colt, made under license in Italy. You can get a factory letter on 'em from Colt, so I think that's good enough to call genuine.

Fantasy or not, I don't really care.

I'll believe that when I see somebody post a pic of one. The Colt 3rd gens were made under license but Colt wont letter them.

Hawg...now you've got me jealous ! I have a lot of muzzleloaders laying around here, but got the bug for an Enfield a while back. I picked up a nice..possibly unfired Navy Arms Enfield barrel, and figured I'd find one of those stock/hardware deals on Ebay maybe and put together one for myself. It hasn't been looking too promising so far. That's a great looking pair you have...

Thanks OS. I bought my repro in 1980 IIRC and when I bought the original I paid less than a repro costs now.
