1851 Navy Colt serial number query

Hi,

I have a good replica of an 1851 navy colt. I have found many Italian replicas have their own manufacturing stamp on the revolver somewhere. Mine has none, it just has 'made in italy' stamped on the underside of the hexagonal barrel. It does have matching serial numbers on the trigger guard, frame, butt and inside the handle. The serial number is 64393. It has a brass frame and the engraved navy scene on the cylinder. Does anyone know the date of manufacture?, I have looked online but have had no luck. I have included some images of the revolver too. One last thing to mention is the screw going through the loading lever goes in the opposite way to all the other screws, I havn't seen this on any other replicas.

I would appreciate any help,

Many thanks Warren
