I have 0 knowledge of percussion revolvers and cant find enough data to determine whether it is real or fake. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (sorry about the poor photos)

An Italian fantasy replica of a revolver that never existed.

Navy Colts were .36 - Armys were .44.

They both had color-casehardened frames - not brass.

These were built as low-cost cap and ball revolvers for the American market - Cabela's sells them - proof marks are on the right side, inder the barrel wedge.

Time to start buying reference books...

I was 99% sure it was after I looked at Colt serial numbers and saw exactly what you had mentioned. Good thing I paid $100 for it ;). maybe $75 to much?

Thanks for the info

You paid about an average - the new ones are a bit more, but not by much.

Use it to learn about shooting percussion guns, or sell it at a garage sale, and get your money back.
