Need Some Help ID'ing This Colt

I just found and bought a 1851 brasser (civilian model) made in 1970 with the letters "FAGS" in a box on the bottom of the grip frame. I have NO idea who the manufacturer was and the only other writing is "Cal .36 Navy Model Made in Italy" on one of the side flats. The revolver is in excellent shape cosmetically and only problem is with the sear engaging consistantly which is an easy fix...cool gun, probably for sale once I get it up back to battery

That's a new one on me. A gun for gays. I've seen RAG, that's Rigarmi. I never saw FAGS.

I can't remember if it was Gregorelli or Gradoga.
If I recall correctly, Articap has answered this question a couple of times before..... he'll be along shortly.

Hi,
Maybe that's could be this :
Fabrica Armi Gregorelli Successore

Check info with "search posts" on the board to be liked to a recently post open about this. It remember me, that's located at "manufacturers of replicas" or something else...

Here's a link to the post that I made speculating about the maker FAGS. Unfortunately the article that I referenced was moved.
