I have a hard time finding out who the manufacturer was for this top break. If anyone can help please do! It has an L stamped in a couple locations. I think it might be a model 3 clone but I might be wrong.

Can you tell us what markings are on the gun? I see what looks to be a proofmark on the cylinder but it is not clear enough to identify. Has it any printing anywhere?

I'd put money on Uberti 1875.

Look at this as well, that's a cylinder from Uberti.

I'm thinking its a refurbished original. Which would explain changed grips. If they aren't the originals.

I was told by the man.that brought it to me that it is a s&w model 3 .44 Russian. I hate to tell him but i cannot find anything on it to make it seem to be s&w. Most of them have a whole in the trigger which this one does not.
