There is some writing on the top of the barrel. With some very thin paper, you might try the old trick of putting the paper over the barrel and lightly rubbing the side of a soft lead pencil over the paper to try to see what it says. When I magnify the picture, it looks like there is a CSA on the barrel.

It looks to me like a badly mistreated Uberti 1858 New Army.

The grip scales have either been replaced or it is a recent reproduction made to look like an antique.

What does the bore look like? Did you find it out in a shed or burried somewhere? How did you come by it?

I didn't make it...swing by the new member introduction thread and tell us a bit about you.

I'm thinking it's a reproduction made to look old but this is't my area of expereince, some parts look in good condition while others seem distressed.

its a remington model 1863 44cal percussion. which in turn was a plagerized copy of the colt navy 44. most liekly it is a reproduction or a faked civil war replica. the Confederate States of America (CSA) didnt bother stamping it on firearms. there wasnt time and it cost money. usually if you see CSA stamped on a civil war item its been at sometime between the civil war and now faked to sell to people as a confederate artifact. since real confederate items are very valuable the fakes out weigh the real by the thousands.

Despite rumors to the contrary, these dated to before my time in the Army. i do know that Remington was quite proud of their products, and marked them prominently- usually seen as a "3 line marking"

I agree that the CSA mark is dubious. I have taken the liberty of sending a link to one of, if not THE most repected man on antique US firearms I know of, and have asked if he can take a peek, and share his thoughts.

Remington never made a brass framed 58. This is an inexpensive import. These brass framed guns can be loaded with light loads.
