Pietta 1851 Navy 4-Screw
« on: February 18, 2020, 07:34:18 PM »
For those that may be interested, I have a Pietta 1851 Navy 4-screw cut for stock I acquired from the Dr. James L. Davis collection a few months ago. Date code AZ/1990. It is very much a Pietta pre-CNC revolver as several internal parts do not interchange with the newer CNC guns. It has a "tail" grip assembly, but it is not the same "tail" configuration as the Pietta ~2001-2014 revolvers: let's call it a "tween", or the small "tail" vs. the large "tail". It has the blondish wood somewhat common to replicas produced by High Standard and others of that time frame. The metal finish is good overall, but there are a few minor external imperfections that would not pass in the 21st century. Pietta has not marketed an 1851 Navy 4-screw for more than 2 decades, but Pietta does currently market an 1861 Navy 4-screw cut for stock framed revolver.

It is in pretty nice shape for a 30-year-old shooter.

Regards,

Jim

That's a good one Jim.

It's amazing how far they've come in the last 30 years.
