One interesting thing is how the cutout under the barrel is so well finished like the originals. Most newer '60 Armies have little if any tapering or rounding of the forward edge of the loading cutout area and the area right under the barrel. The Centaurs do as do the originals. Typically you can't get a LEE conical to load due to lack of room whereas the originals are very spacious in the loading/ramming area. With a bit of jiggling I can load conicals in my Hartford model ASM Army but never could on a Pietta.

That funny ring does make you wonder.

Look under the rammer on the barrel for any manufacturer's marks.
