Pietta. Nice CCH that doesn't show up in the pic. Fit and finish is good except for the fat grips Pietta uses and of course it has the incorrect Pietta tail, but for the money it can't be beat. It is an excellent shooter.
BTW it is a .36, no navy revolver was ever made in .44

Not the best picture but this is a Uberti 1851 London model. It's the same as an 1851 Navy except the grip frame is steel instead of brass.

That looks like a Dragoon, not a 1851 Navy. All 1851 Navys had octagon barrels. The powder flask also looks like one for a Dragoon. They are bigger with the "hooks" on the sides. A dragoon is 44 caliber and a bigger gun. A nice one though.

That is a Dragoon. Its true that Colt 51 Navies all had octagonal barrels but some of the Confederate copies had round barrels like the Leech & Rigdon and the brass framed Griswold & Gunnison. FWIW Colt never made a brass frame and no brass frame was made in .44 caliber.

I've been shooting C&B revolvers since the mid 70s and as I could afford them replaced my Ubertis with Colt 2nd Generations. Pictured are the Models 1851 Navy, 1862 Pocket Navy and 1862 Pocket Police. The 1851 was my entry level gun into black powder shooting. However, I quickly discovered and was won over by the pocket models. They are a lot easier to carry and for me fit my needs perfectly. These have seen their share of use and carry. The pre-ban elephant ivory grips were my upgrade and came from Jerry Meacham, NC.
