Colts / 1851 navy Frederic Remington commerative
« on: November 18, 2012, 11:48:06 PM »
Hi,
I am new to this forum and looking for information on a gun I bought a couple weeks ago.  I have an Uberti made 1851 Navy colt which is a Frederick Remington commemorative model.  The gun has a smoke blued barrel and cylinder with stainless frame and loading lever. The trigger guard is brass as is the back strap. The hammer is also stainless. The whole thing is floral engraved and the cylinder is engraved with a cowboy on a horse.  The left side of the barrel is inscribed with the words... FREDERIC REMINGTON COMEMORATIVE "THE COWBOY".  Also near the muzzle on the left side of the barrel is stamped NE 1145.  I assume that this is the serial number from the New England collectors association.  I can't find much about the gun or the New England Collectors on the web.  I am wondering if any members know anything about the gun.  Mostly i would like to know if it is worth more than a standard Uberti 1851 Navy and if i should leave it alone or shoot it.  I am not very interested in owning a gun that would be devalued if I shoot it.  I bought it because I like the way it looks.  I knew nothing until I read a post in this forum about another 1851 commemorative gun similar to it. 
I am new to black powder pistols but not new to guns.  Can anybody help me out with info.  Also would like some advice about loading and what powder to use.  Oh yeah,  forgot to mention the pistol is .36 cal.

Thanks for any help
