1851 Navy Colt 

     Notes: This .36 caliber revolver is one of the more famous Colt revolvers.  Many of the later revolvers manufactured by Colt followed the styles and patterns originally developed in both the Walker Dragoon and the 1851 Navy.  The 1851 Navy was used by both the Confederate and Union troops throughout the American Civil War.  Probably one of the most notable individuals who used the weapon was Wild Bill Hickok, who carried a matched pair of 1851 Navy revolvers.

     The 1851 Navy was a light pistol, weighing in at 2 pounds.  It had a 7½-inch barrel and an overall length of 14 inches.  This made it very popular because it was light and could be quite handy.  An attachable stock can be added to the 1851 Navy Colt to create a light carbine. 

     In the 20th century, replicas were made at various times of this weapon for collectors who could not afford real ones.  They may be more or less accurate in historical terms.

American Arms Regulator

     Notes: American Arms of Kansas City Missouri (there have been at least four companies at various times named American Arms) was a company that was largely importing and distributing European firearms, though in some cases it imported the unassembled parts and assembled and finished them on-site, and could therefore legally claim it was a “manufacturer” of weapons as well.  I say “was” above because American Arms was bought out by Tristar Sporting Arms in 2001, and most of the former American Arms products were dropped in the process.

     One of American Arms’ imports was the Regulator, which was one of the many replicas and near-replicas of the Colt Single Action Army.  Available in three barrel lengths and several chamberings, the Regulator is usually found with an Old West-style color-case hardened frame, and hammer, brass trigger guard and backstrap, and a blued cylinder and barrel; the grips are of walnut.  The Regulator also has a modern transfer-bar type safety (often found on replicas today).  A Regulator Deluxe version was also made, with a steel backstrap and trigger guard.  The Regulator Deluxe was made only for .45 Long Colt (without an interchangeable cylinder), but is otherwise identical to the standard Regulator for game purposes.

     The .45 Long Colt version was sold with interchangeable cylinders allowing it to fire .45 Long Colt or .45 ACP (with a cylinder change).  The hammer cocks with a light pull, but the grip is a bit short for the average hand of an American male.  (The Regulator is able to take a large number of aftermarket grips, however.)  The fixed sights are often criticized as tiny, giving some shooters problems at short range.

AWA 1873 Single Action Army

     Notes: AWA (American Western Arms) produces some of the most authentic-looking replicas of Old West firearms today.  Their firearms are at least assembled in the US, though most of their parts production is outsourced to Armi San Marco in Italy.

     AWA is perhaps best-known for its replica of the Colt Single Action Army, which it calls the AWA 1873 Single Action Army.  There are several versions of this weapon, and they differ primarily in grade and a few other specifications such as barrel lengths available and chamberings.  These revolvers are not exactly like the originals (materials, manufacturing methods, and often calibers are different), but the look is pure Old West.  They are built almost entirely from steel, except for the one-piece walnut handgrip. The metalwork is generally finished in highly-polished blue; in addition, chromed and nickel-plated finishes (brushed, polished, or matte) are also available, as well as some or even all of the revolver having a color-case hardened finish.  In addition, deluxe finishes (A, B, C, and D-levels) are also available, with increasing levels of engraving and scrollwork as well as increasingly better woods for the grip and touches like checkering.  Sights generally consist of a U-notch “Action Sight” in the rear and fixed front blade.

     The base version of the AWA 1873 SAA is the Classic model.  This version may be chambered for .357 Magnum/.38 Special or .45 Long Colt, and with 4.75-inch or 5.5-inch barrels.  Barrels are round, and loading is done through a loading gate.

     The Ultimate 1873 Single Action Army (often called simply “The Ultimate”) is a higher-grade version.  Several barrel lengths are available, including a 10-inch Buntline barrel is also available as a custom option.  The Ultimate is also has several more chamberings than the Classic.  The Ultimate uses a “Coil Main Spring System,” which decreases the hammer’s cocking weight as well as allowing a harder hammer strike, making the Ultimate both easier to cock and increasing reliability.

     The Octagonal 1873 Single Action Army (or simply the Octagonal) is built on The Ultimate’s base, but features an octagonal heavy barrel with a length as long as 12 inches, and most of the chamberings of The Ultimate.

Century Model 100

     Notes: This finely-made revolver has a tragic history – the designer, Gene Phelps, suffered from depression and killed himself in the late 1990s during the initial production run, and as a result, only 276 of these guns were built.  As they were practically handmade, the owner of Century Manufacturing simply assembled the remaining Model 100s and no more were built after that.  Those that exist now are therefore rare and worth far more in real life terms than the game prices listed below.  Most of these revolvers were finely-engraved and decorated, with grips of various good-quality woods and several different finishes, often with different finishes for the barrel, cylinder, frame, and/or trigger, hammer, and cylinder pin; most had blued cylinders and barrels, with a sort of off-gold color to the frame.  Grips were normally high grade walnut. They are absolutely huge revolvers, and very heavy ones, built strong to handle their powerful chamberings – the Model 100 fires what are normally considered rifle rounds, not pistol or revolver rounds.  The barrels are extra-heavy and match-quality.  Sights consist of an adjustable Millet rear and ramp front.  The frame is of a manganese/bronze alloy, and the cylinder and barrel are steel.
