The Cavalier® Open Top Nickel Finish
Although it appears to be a conversion, the 1871-72 Open Top model was Colt’s® first revolver specifically manufactured to fire a centerfire cartridge by incorporating the loading gate in the frame. Since Colt® did not use percussion revolver parts, the revolver was manufactured as an entirely new model, first with Navy-sized grips, later with Army-sized grips. The Cavalier™ revolver comes with a nickeled forged steel frame, nickeled parts, round barrel with front blade sight, modern ejector rod, sleek black polymer Navy size grip, and a rear sight notch on the rear of the barrel. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.
