It is a Remington Beals copy (maybe from Spain) in 36 navy caliber.
There's no markings, so I suppose it is a handcrafted piece.
The previous owner had it for more than 50 years, so possibly it was made during the 60s.
Came with a 124 grains conical bullet mold, and shooting it I obtained about 1100 fps with such bullets.

It's beautiful. From the looks I would have assumed it was an original.

At first sight I assumed it, too. But after close examination I saw the hammer looks like modern steel. So I suppose the rest of it is also contemporary.

For sure, the navy caliber Beals are not the most common of the originals or even replicas.
