    Unfortunatly you may never know. There have been quite a few different copy manufactures in Italy over the years. Just know that it is built good and solid.

    revolving rifle

    thanks cpttango, i am inclined to think your right, googled it every wich way but nothing!, it is well made, if it was anything bigger like 45lc i would'nt shoot it without a face mask and no fingers near the cylinder, this gun has a wooden foregrip and seems to shoot well although i'm blind as a bat its quite accurate almost a bull barrel, i'll still post pic's and see what you folks think..........kingpin
