I purchased awhile back this revolving carbine replica,make unknown.I think it was advertised at the time as a Uberti.It doesn't have the kind of markings found on my other revolvers so :confused:.On the barrel under the rammer it says [cal 44 black powder only-made in italy]. Proof marks just above rammer on barrel.no other markings I can find.The fit and finish are excellent,somewhat better than my others.Anyone know the lowdown on these?

Appears to be an Uberti, though the markings you show are just proof marks. It's the same as the 1858 pistol, but longer. Loads the same, needs the same precautions as any cap and ball revolver.

What do you want to know, in particular?

Only feed back I can give is that the originals were not very popular. Resoning that if you only get a chain-fire (one cylinder setting off another) once in a blue moon, that one time you will have your supporting hand right in front of the firing cylinder. Owie!

Thanks guys. Just wanted to know the pedigree.I have only shot this a couple times,its just a collectable. Not only do you have your hand close to the action your face is close too!:DP.S. I try to have all parts behind cyl when firing.

I think Uberti is the only one that made the carbine version. Its not Pietta with a dovetailed lever catch at any rate.
