At first glance, looks like a decorator item made for the tourist trade, and not as a firearm. To post pics directly, have them in your computer, and use the little paperclip icon above where you are typing- just to the right of the white smiley face.

I agree. I don't believe it is real.

It looks like a decorative piece or old movie/stage prop to me as well. The workmanship is very poor and it just looks off up close, but from 10-20 feet away looks fine.

It's junk. Has some modern looking screws. The ramrod is fake. It's poorly made. In terrible condition. Even if it was real I would never consider buying or shooting it. I've seen better made replicas for under $80.

ok thanks guys i appreciate the info,i had a feeling it may have been junk but the metal on it looked so old and worn i thought perhaps it was a very old item.thanks again for takeing the time to look at the item for me i appreciate it.

An easy way to tell also if you have a reproduction is look at the barrel. In the old days they did not mark them "use black powder only" This is just a general remark as I did not look at the pic aft reading the more informed replies.

Before you agree with someone on line , just looking at That so called piece of JUNK. Remember the old saying, something , like "you can not tell a book by is cover" I would take it as a grain of salt. you did not mention any perticulars , such as where you bought it , and any info on the barrel ect.
I agree with the remark concerning , the pistol would not have Blk Powdr
Only. if it was authentic;.or new type screws ect. However some one may have done a little smithing on there own, and not knowing what they were doing. If you have determined is authentic or not , take it to gun dealer or smith . I looked closley at the pics.,and I was not able to give a positive yes or no; I am not a expert, so after you find out let us know , You may have , the same people that said it is junk, Now askiing $$HOW MUCH!!! DUDE Good luck.
