Colt BP Signature Series 1851 London

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This Colt Black Powder Arms Co. 1851 London Navy Signature Series needed much better metal polish. It had rounded corners, rounded flats, and buffed-in holes for the screws, which werent enough to offset an overall superb bluing and case-coloring job. Wed pass on it until they learn how to polish metal.

The Colt BP guns are called the Signature Series because they all have Sam Colt's signature on the backstrap.
