Me and the little tyke are out this morning getting some chores done and getting ready for a play date she has, on the way over to the friends house I pass a yard sale sign that states 'old stuff and not just junk', which got me interested so i pulled over. There are boxes upon boxes of stuff and i realize that some poor sods just bit the cord and the estates being cleared. There was everything, scythes, horse drawn harrows and plows, loads of tack, loads of old hunting and fishing stuff that is now woefully out of date and/or completely useless. Dozens of deer and elk racks. Then i get to the corner and see a guy turning a box over that looks like a cigar box. When he opens it, and notices it is an old pistol presentation box, empty. He says something to his wife, puts it under his arm and goes back to the box. He then pulls out some old grey oxidized leaf ingots, a crucible and some molds. By now I am almost in tears that i missed these and just watch him walk away quickly pay. My daughters got her head stuck in another box and turns to me a says loudly "GUN DADA", which is part of our gun safety, if my girls ever see a gun they are to step away and shout me. I dive over and pull out this... I think i was salivating.. I know its obviously an 1858, but it does not look like either my Pietta's or my Uberti. I go to pay and ask him what he want's... "Oh that old thing? Its a wall hanger, give me $25 and call it good" I have yet to take it apart, but i can find NO stamps, NO barrel marks, NO makers mark, etc. At least the action works, seems crisp, and the cylinder is free spinning and no back and forward play. Its definitely not going to be a 'wall hanger' Anyone any idea who made them without markings?? Sorry about the pics, its late!
