Need original backstrap for Colt 1851 Navy
« on: March 23, 2016, 04:12:15 PM »

A young collector here has a bit of a wreck of a Colt  Model 1851 Navy.  It is missing the backstrap.  He is a young budding collector, the kind that we should encourage.

He would like to buy an original brass backstrap for his Navy.  A replica or reproduction won't work for him.  Obviously the number won't match but at least it will be original so he can put it back together.

Anyone got one in a junk box that they can sell?  Or know someone who might have one?

Thanks for looking.

He considered one of their reproduction parts but wants to find an original part.  Anyway, the reproduction straps are slightly smaller than the original counter part.

Thanks for the help he says.

Apparently coltparts.com doesn't have one - two emails inquiring were not answered.  Thanks again for the suggestion.
