Description


The Traditions™ 1851 Sheriff Revolver features an engraved steel barrel and black wooden laminate handle. Union Army soldiers and mounted soldiers were typically issued these sidearm revolvers designed for the time. They relied heavily on these revolvers for short range and close quarters combat. The revolver was unique and highly sought-after because it had the ability to fire several rounds per minute before having to reload. Revolvers were typically issued as the sidearm of choice to officers and mounted soldiers. However some were purchased privately or found scattered on the battlefield by infantrymen.

Distinguished by its octagon barrel and lever style loader, the Model 1851 Revolver helped to begin both the expansion of the West and the Civil War. The 1851 Revolver is commonly considered to be one of gunfighter “Wild Bill” Hickok’s favorite handguns. The British government licensed the manufacturing rights and produced what is commonly known as the London Model. This revolver features a 4.75" engraved barrel, brass frame, brass guard, and walnut grip. It is available in .44 caliber, weighs 1.75 lbs., and is 10.75" in length.
