The notorious outlaw Josey Wales fired many guns in his day, but none were as feared and infamous as his .36 caliber Colt 1851 Navy Revolver. Now you can experience the same deadly firepower wielded by Wales, as well as dozens of other legendary Wild West criminals, thanks to Traditions Firearms' fully functional, historically faithful Josey Wales Navy Revolver. This .36 caliber black powder revolver mirrors the one found by Wales after his house was burned down by Northern raiders following the American Civil War. During the war, thousands of Confederate troops employed similar Colt 1851 revolvers as their go-to sidearms. Although the resourcefully equipped Confederate soldier couldn't compete with Union repeating rifles, it was a different story when it came to revolvers. Handguns like the Colt 1851 Navy Model did not typically require a special type of ammunition, making them easy for Southern troops to acquire and operate. Traditions Firearms' working replica features myriad fine, historically accurate appointments, like a 7 1/2" antiqued round barrel, antiqued steel frame and guard, hammer/blade sights and walnut grips. There's no question - this rustic handgun provides an authentic 19th century shooting experience. But unlike its more-than-150-year-old original counterpart, you can count on Traditions Firearms' modern version to fire safely and aim true every time, when used as directed. There's nothing like black powder - the smell, the sound and the feel is legendary. Keep this rich "tradition" alive with Traditions Firearms - order the .36 caliber Josey Wales Navy Revolver today! The Josey Wales Revolver also makes a great gift for muzzleloader enthusiasts; Civil War buffs; fans of Wild West history, cinema and literature; and gun aficionados of all types.
