Manhattan Firearms "Navy" Model Series III, .36 Percussion 
The Manhattan "Navy" was produced from 1859 to 1868, and is a close copy of Colt's Model 1851 "Navy". Although Manhattan was never able to secure any military contracts for their products, many Union officers and enlisted men carried Manhattan's as their sidearm or back-up. This model has the less-common 6 1/2 inch barrel. The gun bears some faint traces of blue on the frame and barrel, in protected places. The cylinder scene is mostly worn off and the vignettes are no longer discernible. The grips are very good, with most of the original varnish in place, and a small chip missing out of the bottom left heel. The silver plating on the brass grip strap and trigger guard is about 75% intact. The action is crisp and accurate, the nipples are clean and undamaged. The bore is bright with sharp rifling. SN 20393, rated fine overall.
