Colt 1851 Navy Revolver

Wooden Colt 1851 Navy Revolver made by Furio Sciumbata, Livorno
If you do not like guns do not worry, this Colt 1851 Navy Revolver is completely made of wood. Behind this masterpiece is the same craftsman who makes fine guitars and other string instruments: my friend Furio.

Everything is accurately made of wood: gun, balls, caps, powder flask, and even the bullet mold.

The revolver mechanism is obviously working: you can cock the hammer, which has a half-cock position, rotating the six round cylinder. You may and also use the loading lever or disassemble the gun completely.

That is amazing. I wonder how long that took to create.

It must be wonderful to have the skills, will, patience to craft such a thing.
The bullet mold is new to me. Interesting.

Your friend does great work. I have seen the real thing at Hartford's Colt collection.

Furio is very good at that sort of thing.
