Does the barrel say black powder only?

Looks like a replica to me.

What mountainman is getting at, I believe, is that modern replicas are usually marked for black powder only. Because back in the day, there was no smokeless powder to get it mixed up with, so an original likely wouldn't be marked. No need for it.
