Dec 16, 2019 · WTS: NIB (New In Box) Traditions Pietta 1851 Navy .36 steel frame S/N 697715. Purchased new 2018. $230 plus shipping. Thanks for looking! Nearly identical to the more famous Colt revolvers in looks and design, the Griswold & Gunnison .36 caliber percussion revolver had some brass parts, since steel was more difficult to procure, owing to the supply problems caused by the war, and had an octagonal barrel that tapered to a round shape at the end of the muzzle. They were also known to have used twisted iron for the barrel.
Hi, gents. Thinking about another 1851 Navy, steel in .36 cal. Doesn't have to be new by any means, but looking for the best quality for the buck. I'm not looking to spend much over 3 bills and don't care about fancy accessories..it will be a shooter.
