Colt Navy Revolver

Description

The Navy was based on the original Colt Paterson design of 1836, and saw widespread military and civilian service.

Using the percussion system of ignition, it would take some time to load, but was among the first pistols to provide the user with multiple shots before reloading.

This is one of the pistols wielded by Jamie Foxx in Django Unchained (2012).
