You have a modern replica of the Colt Walker, or a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Model Dragoon, made in Italy by Armi San Marco.
They made lower quality replicas of Colt black powder revolvers.
The Walker weights about 4 1/2 pounds and has a spring latch for the loading lever under the barrel.
The three models of the Colt Dragoon have a latch at the front of the lever that locks into a block near the muzzle, and are both slightly lighter and have a slightly shorter barrel then the Walker.

The engraving on the cylinder is of the famed "Texas Rangers and Indians" incident where the Texas Frontier Battalion of the Texas Rangers engaged a large force of Comanche indians with early Colt Patterson revolvers, and shot the indians to pieces.

As above, you have a black powder, muzzle loading revolver.
All of the various stamps are the usual Italian proof marks.
