A Practical Replica of Wild Bill Hickok's 1851 Navy Revolver
One of the most iconic characters of the American West, "Wild Bill" Hickok was known to have wielded a pair of .36-caliber Colt 1851 Navy cap-and-ball revolvers during his gunfights in the heady days of the frontier. Now, Uberti offers a similar replica in the form of its Wild Bill 1851 Navy Conversion, which is chambered for .38 Special.
The .38 Special chambering of this Wild Bill Hickok 1851 Navy Conversion revolver makes it much easier and more practical for modern shooters, who are less enthusiastic about having to go through the rigorous loading process of a traditional muzzleloading revolver. This conversion revolver provides a similar shooting experience combined with the ease and practicality of a modern-day, contained-cartridge gun.
