Of course, MADE IN ITALY would arouse strong suspicions..........


Still, looks like a VERY nice revolver. PS- difference between replica (fake gun) an reproduction.
+1 I agree 100%

It sure looks like a re-blued original to me. Where is Reinhard?

Based on the pics, I would say an original...or a really darn good reproduction.

You might have a treasure right there.

I wondered if Remington did a reproduction run of their old warhorse.

I posted some pics with Remington, and it is indeed an original, manufactured in 1861. Thanks for everyone's assistance. It was very much appreciated!!!

Are you going to shoot it? BTW, never let the hammer down from half cock. Always fully cock it before you let it down. If you don't that drag line will just get worse.

i know what you are going through. i have been researching 2 guns i just got a 1826 us Springfield and a Kentucky long rifle made by Cornell Kemper. not a lot out there on either gun not to mention not a price anywhere on what they could be worth.

Cornell Kemper was a custom rifle builder from the 50's till sometime in the 70's. He only made about one rifle per year so there's not many around. Should be worth a pretty penny if it's in good shape. The 1826 Springfield is actually a model 1816 flintlock. However many of these if not most were converted to percussion at the beginning of the Civil War.

the remington is 100% original,so are the grips ,got the same opinion as Hawg on this gun,to determine if the blueing is original a visiual inspection is needed,always hard to make out with indoor pics,...very nice gun
