Wow, you have been AWOL for quite a while. Welcome Home!

Schneider & Glassick, Armi Esterina & Co., 1975

I am very curious about this one: never heard of the manufacturer before. What do the maker marks look like?

Regards,

Jim

Hey Guys,

First, Very nice collection.

Second, "PR ITALY" - is the mark used by Fabbrica d'Armi Esterina Riva for black powder replicas, imported by FIE (Firearms Import Export). Evidently, arms from this manufacturer, while safe and serviceable, are not of the best quality when it comes to finish and materials used.
