Did ASM make repro 1951 "Navy" brasser .44 pistols with short barrel/load lever?

Pretty sure they did. Pietta and ASM were the main ones making 44 navy brassers. Euroarms may have but I don't think they made them with short barrels. Uberti made some in the beginning but again I don't think they made short barrels. I could be wrong on all counts tho.

Not sure about Euroarms; but Uberti did make some 36 cal brass framed Sheriffs models prior to 1980 (? -  maybe later too).

I'm assuming they are on the Cimarron site.  I cant find them though.  You have the link?

Fingers McGee, what is your view of a fair price for the basic line-up? (pretty much NIB condition etc.) Depends on whether I'm buying or selling.  What I would consider fair for a no nonsense, 100%, New In the Box example would be in the neighborhood of:

Walker  $900.00

1848 Pocket  $600.00

Dragoons  $675.00 to $700.00

Navies  $600.00 (1851) - $700.00 (1861)

Army $700.00 (rebated cyl) $750.00 (fluted cyl)

Pocket .36s $600.00

Going to the Simpson Limited ad.  The bottom two Dragoons are priced about right.   The cased 1851 Navies are too high for not having the original boxes and having non Colt case and accessories. The cased 3rd model Dragoon is all Colt; but, the original black box is missing. Pocket Navy is a good price.

Not Cheap.

Edit - Overall not cheap - some decent price.

Scrutinizing the engravings on the  C  F  and 3rd gens, they seem to be all the same.  Do you think Uberti did all of them?  I mean the C s  were done by, basically the same folks,- Val, Lou and Iver (Iver s  works) ?

No, I don't think Uberti did them all.  If you compare ASMs, Armi San Paolos, Piettas and all the other roll engraved cylinders, they mostly all look alike.

They're no more a Colt than a Colt marked Zippo lighter.

I've got one of those.  Colt Royal Blue, not that cheap imitation blue/black of the Signature Series.  You mean the guy that sold it to me as an authentic Colt was lying?    *9+

Well ummm actually. Yep!  (7+"

Tucker, Sherrard & Co. dragoon on Gun Broaker: http://www.gunbroker.com/item/673202440
Current bid is $355.00.

$355 is a decent price for one of these.  Too bad the case & accessories are missing.

A couple years ago, I sent an inquiry to the Consorzio Armaioli Italiani asking if they knew who was hiding behind the PR mark, and this is what Ms Monica Cancarini answered:
"PR is a proof mark for RIVA ESTERINA. The company stopped their production at the end of 1979/1980 (more or less)."
This being consistent with what the proofhouse told me, I believe PR to be one of the trade marks Riva Esterina used.

Sounds good to me.  I've never heard of Riva Esterina until now.  What other trade marks did they use?

I believe the PR logo is for Pierino Ruschetta based on a lengthy post about manufacturers on TFL   (https://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=340072&highlight=pr&page=2)  that included this post:

http://www.earmi.it/armi/database/armieri.htm

It lists all Italian gun makers from 1945-1980.

There is a Pierino Ruschetta listed, and I think the PR is him!

I recall reading somewhere that Numrich bought out all of the Old Army parts from Ruger.

They might have; but, there are no hands (Pawls) listed, much less on hand.

Ruger? Pretty sure parts are still in production even if the guns aren't...

Ruger has no parts for the Old Army.

I know.  This is a Colt forum.  But a friend needs some help.  Anyone know where I can get a hand for a Ruger old army?
