I'm thinking that you misunderstand what I'm trying to do here. I knew from day one that this is not a G&G, Colt and many others but what I don't know, is what it is and that is what is driving me to keep up my search.

Can this topic be moved to a more active topic as you suggested?

This is what I've been dealing with for 10 years now. There are no grind or file marks anywhere on it, no "black powder only", no "made in Italy" and no name. After years of searching I have only located one other like it at an auction in the U.K. and it was identical. The thing that caught my eye the most when I found that one was, it was marked 1247 on the inside and mine is 1257. What are the odds of that?. The sellers posting said he had his tested and it was from the 1863 time frame. personally, I don't know if that kind of testing is possible. That one sold at auction for 1350.00 pounds.

I'm a new member who's been trying for ever to i.d. an old black powder 1851 with no luck. how about a category just for unknown's where members ad their thought as to what it is? Also is there any way that when editing a post that you can change the category that it was originally posted in? I made a mistake when I posted my "new member, old revolver I.D. problem" in introductions when it should have been in confederate revolvers. Thanks for the opportunity. OHT

Hi. I'm a new member here and was hoping to get some experienced input on a problem I've had for 10 years now trying to i.d. a revolver I have. It looks like a G&G but there are no names on it any where. I've sent pictures of it to museums and collectors  everywhere with no results and I'm about at my wit's end. Instead of reposting all the pic's and and retyping (with one finger) allllll the facts it would be so much easier to just post a link to treasurenet where the most of it is posted. I sure hope I can get this solved and end 10 years of it eating at me. Thanks in advance for any help. I've included a couple pics. Dan
