    Nope- not without better pics, and ALL of the markings that may be on there. It is a ball and cap revolver- if you are not familiar with that term, it uses loose black powder, lead balls (bullets) and percussion caps. Most common calibers are .36 and .44, but you are not holding the gun close enough to the computer to tell you more right now. Need close up pics, high resolution, in focus.

    And, if you would, add something so we can tell the correct size. Some miniatures look and function like their big brothers. Put a ruler or something in the picture. Thanks.

    It looks like a .31 pocket model to me.

    1858 Remington .31 caliber pocket pistol. Can't tell from the pic whether it's original or a reproduction.

    It looks like the .31 pocket revolver stalkingbear mentioned. Similar to the ones below.

    I was going to say .43 kurz , though I think that is not correct.;)

    The others seem to have that correct answer. I'd take their word for it.
