I have purchased at a gun show a "new model army" .44 caliber percussion cap revolver with a 71/2" octogon barrel. Other than needing a good cleaning it is solid and shows little wear. Beneath the "ram" the stampings read "made by E.N. Santa Barbara" a symbol and then the word Spain, serial number is *04566. It appears to look similar to the original .44 caliber revolvers of the civil war period. I, of course, know NOTHING about percussion cap pistols, I purchased it simply because I fancy myself as somewhat of a patriot and my home is decorated with the Constitution of the United States, books and artifacts about the "overmountain men", early east Tennessee, up through the "cowboy and indian" days. Obviously this is a reproduction and not an original 1800's piece. I would appreciate any information someone might have on the manufacturer, possible date of manufacture, loading, firing, and possible history behind this piece. I do not intend to fire this pistol but I would like to clean it up and know a little more about it. I am not beyond searching the internet if someone can lead me in the right direction since I have already spent several hours trying to locate this info. Thank you for your interest and I appreciate your response. mrhaney55@sbcglobal.net.

Welcome to the forum Mr. Haney.
Sorry I have no info on your gun, but would love to see some photos if you get a chance.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
