Colt .36 Navy For Sale
I have for your consideration a .36 caliber Navy pistol for sale. I took this in from a friend who bought it used and left it in with his moist gear and it rusted. I work with metal tooling so I filed and polished all of the rust off and cold blued the barrel (it is not jet black blue, more of a worn look transparent black). One nipple was stuck frozen and I had to remove it by drilling it out on a mill slightly undersize and retapped it to the correct thread. I did not have another Colt nipple for it so I put in a spare from my Remington .31 caliber pistol which is .030 shorter and should be replaced.
I removed the polyurathane finish off of the grips and applied boiled linseed oil to it. The grips are virtually blemish free. I also trued up all of the screw heads. It has a hair trigger and am not savy on correcting that feature so I never put attention to that. There is pitting in the inside of the barrel.
I have used this for a few reenactments with no issues. I have never live fired it and make no claims for such.
I have no idea who the maker was on this as it has no indication. It is an earlier repro and the s/n is 15327.
All in all I think it came out very well and looks vintage. You would be hard pressed to find any evidence of pitting on the exterior metal work other than a portion of the hammer.
Including postage and insurance I would like $105. Will not ship to states where not allowed, nor to minors.
I take Pay Pal with no added charges for their fees, money orders, or checks from those I have done buisness with before.
Communicate via PM.
