    I don't know anything about these guns but the stock and finish look much too good to be an authentic one, especially with the bore looking like it does. I'd guess a reproduction from someone who shot it a few times and didn't clean it properly.

    I'd say repro on the stock, at least. The wood used on US Martial pistols then did not look that way at all in density an of course color. Metal looks like modern machining.

    I think the repos are .58 caliber not the original .54.

    It's an aged Pedersoli repro. The profile of the cock gives it away, as well as the rifled bore. If you measure the bore, you'll find it's .58.
