    I'm not to up on replica revolvers but i was asked if i can fix an 1860 army Italian made. Never fearing the opportunity of working on a piece I quickly took it apart and found the cylinder latch worn away. My problem is neither I nor the owner know who the mfg is. It has all the Italian proofs mfg in 1987 but the mfg stamp I can't ID. Can anyone help? Ive attached a pic of the stamp under the barrel

    Thanks goodol'12guage thats my feeling to but never seen a stamp like that. I just hate paying 12 bucks for shipping a part that cost 12 bucks and it dont fit.

    Tate the piece, photocopy it at 100% and send a copy to Dixie Gun Works and have them match it up. Dixiegunworks.com.
