Is there a historical prototype for these revolvers in .44?
No. There were no brass framed (bronze gunmetal) .44 cal revolvers made by either side. They are an invention of the replica manufacturers.

The only .44 cal revolvers made by Confederate manufacturers were the Tucker & Sherrod - which was a clone of the Colt 2nd Model Dragoon - and the Dance Brothers & Park revolvers - Iron frames with no recoil sheilds. The Dance Brothers revolver was also made in .36
