Can you identify this gun?

Hi,
I've just found this gun in my grandfathers shed while cleaning it out and was wondering if anyone can tell me more about it?
I think it may be a replica, or at least a decomissioned pistol, but I'm not certain.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers
Mark

I'm no expert, so I'm guessing here. It looks like it could possibly be an 1851 or 1861 Navy pistol. Are there any markings anywhere? If so, please get some good close up pics for us.

Any manufacturers marks. It looks like some listed here but I;m not sure which if any Uberti 1860 Army Conversion, 1858 New Army Conversion, 1851 Navy Conversion, and 1871-1872 Open Top

Hi Marc! Well- it is a ball and cap revolver. Meaning it used loose black gunpowder, a lead ball bullet, and percussion caps.

Beyond that- I tried tipping the computer so I could read what is marked on the barrel of the gun, but that did not work. :p

Let us know what markings are on the gun. If there are marks that are not letters or numbers, get a close up pic and post them on here.

1851 colt navy, the 1861 does not have a octagonal barrel and the lever for the "packer" is different.

At first I thought it was a dragoon, but they do not have octagonal barrels either, they are virtually the exact same thing, other than caliber and barrel shape.

Those are all cartridge pistols. The pistol pictured is an actual black powder (i.e. cap and ball) pistol.

I am putting my money where my mouth is and sticking with 1851 Colt navy. If I am wrong, than here it is on the net forever lol.

I agree with you on it being an 1851. Beyond that i cant be sure.

I have one very similar to this one. However if you look underneath the trigger guard you should see some stamped numbers if it is a Uberti instead of a 1851 Colt were it was imported.
