    I've got me a Colt 1851 Navy Percussion Revolver that I want to get an appraisal on. Does anybody out there know of a good place to go in the Vancouver/Portland Metro area?

    Hi,

    I have owned & sold about 12 Colt Navy's over the last 12 yrs. Nice ones are valuable.

    You can give me a call at the shop to set up a meeting if you would like my help.

    Thank you,

    Karl

    Is it an original 1851 model Colt or a reproduction such as an Uberti?

    Thanks, I just might do that. It's in pretty rough shape and don't want to put anyone out, but I need to know everything about the gun as possible.

    As far as I can tell it's an original Colt 1851 Navy. The serial numbers put it at 1866-67 for a manufacturing date.

    Condition is everything and a fair condition 51 could be in the $700-800 area, check the completed sales on Gunbroker for 51's that actually sold. That should get you a ball part price.
