Schneider and Glassick

I am looking to aquire one of these but I really do not know how to distinguish a S&G replica from any other brass framed 1851 Navy look alike like a G&G for instance. Is there something unique that makes it identifyable?

Think 1851 Navy, only with a brass frame.

Brass Frame
.36 caliber
Octagonal Barrel

Yeah, what Fingers said. The S&G is a direct copy of the 51 Navy in brass.

...as opposed to the G&G, which has a round barrel.

OK, to simplify, so I can get it to soak in.... an 1851 Navy .36 cal. with an all brass frame and a round barrel is a Griswold & Gunnison and with an octagonal barrel it is a Schneider & Glassick. I got it!

Thanks

That is correct and to continue your history lesson all 51 Navies were .36 caliber. .36 being the Navy caliber and .44 the Army caliber. There never was a brass frame .44 put into production and a steel frame 51 Navy with a round barrel is a Leech & Rigdon

Schneider & Glassick Replic

Most brass frame 1851 Navy replicas also have engraved cylinders. Original S & G cylinders were not engrave. Check out this article.

I did notice the lack of cylinder engraving on mine. I think I have seen brass 51 Navy style revolvers with engraved cylinders but I believe they were 44 cal. which makes them I don't know what.

You will see them in .44 and .36. They're just Italian fantasy pieces.
