An Italian copy of a 1851 Navy Colt revolver, 1967 , brass framed, 36 cal, cap and ball. I wasn't 21 but there were no restrictions on black powder cap and ball revolvers so I could buy it. Price was an affordable $ 29.95 ( steel frame was $9.00 more). I wanted a gun to shoot , I could afford it and if it was good enough for " Wild Bill Hickcock " it was good enough for me. I burned a lot of powder shooting it and had a lot of fun...would still have it but a thief broke in my house and stole it. By then the gun was real loose and I had retired it from service. With insurance money I got a new steel frame replica so I guess it all worked out.
