Well, Navy Arms imported modern day manufactured black powder guns from Italy. Many of the marks you have described are proof marks- required in Europe to show that a gun was test fired by the government testing house (and passed the test)

Unfortunately, they are no more. A brief blip of info for ya- http://www.navyarms.com/

Guns were OK shooters. Not originals, but not real pricey reproductions. What did you want to know?

EDIT- if you need instructions, here is the manual for an Uberti black powder revolver- http://stevespages.com/pdf/uberti_black_powder_revolver.pdf

When you say "brass frame" do you mean the trigger guard and grip frame, or the whole frame around the cylinder? Some people like the look, but the latter is generally considered less desirable. It is not historically correct and is somewhat weaker than a steel framed gun.

That said, you can buy a brand new 1851 Navy reproduction for $200-350 depending on the quality. If its in excellent condition I probably would not spend more that $200 on it, tops. Reproductions like this don't really have any collectors value, it's just a used gun.

Yep. And the strongest indicator that it is a repro is the term "black powder" on the gun. When the originals were made, there was no NEED to mark them, there WAS no other powder!

I'd say $125 - $150. The Cabelas link is a 44. but the 36 should be worth about the same.

The brass frame is OK to shoot - just don't want to do any type of "cartridge conversion" to it-

Nope no conversions!! I would like to find some #10 primer's, Not sure if it is the wrong time of year here in Maine or if it's all the anti gun crap but ya cant buy anything here right now. I also have a .50 cal side-lock rifle but can not find #11's either. How is a man supposed to shoot?

The U if its in an octagon is Uberti's trademark. It has to be an older one if its a brass frame Uberti. Keep loads around 15 grains to keep from battering and stretching the frame. On the right side of the frame should be a set of Roman numerals or two letters in a box. That would be the date code for when it was proofed. http://www.powderhombre.com/mbpproofmarks.pdf
