There are a lot of these out there in various configurations; brass frames, nickel plated, nickel plated with gold plated cylinders, etc. The model description is misleading and not historically correct. The real 1862 pocket models were made on the smaller baby dragoon frame and were only 5 shot pistols. This model is in all actuallity a short barreled 1861 Navy with half fluted cylinder. Italian manufacturers have a tendency to call non-historically accurate repos what ever they want.
