1851 Civilian Model Question
« on: October 01, 2011, 04:22:48 AM »
It seems that all the 1851s I have come across lately are civilian models, no provisions for the shoulder stock.  Are there any military model 1851 being reproduced?

I ask because my 1861 Improved Navies have provisions for the stocks but the last three 1851s I have handled and the ones I see pictured are not cut for the stock.  (Mind you, I hate the stock but still want to know the answer.)

So yours does not have the notches cut in the frame nor the additional screw heads?

Well............................  I've got a four screw '61 Navy frame (Pietta) complete with hammer, trigger, hand  & Spring and trigger/bolt spring, cut for the shoulder stock that I'd gladly trade for a complete three screw '51 Navy frame that wasn't cut.
