Richland Arms was an importer. They imported guns from Pietta, ASM and some Spanish guns. I'd check the gun over for a makers mark and proofs. If it's not Spanish and you can figure out who made it you can probably find parts for it. Pietta parts may work anyway with some fitting. As for mine you can see the rifling marks on the fired bullet I posted.

Thanks Hawg - I'm still in AZ and the pistol is back in the safe in MI - I'll check that out when I get back for sure and see if I can find any markings to tell the mfg. If need be, I just might have to buy one of the Remmie NMA from Cabelas just to see if the loading lever is interchangeable? But then, I'd have one of those "big 44s" - I'd have to put my "big boy pants on" and get a mold for that one too . . . sigh . . amazing how one thing leads to another! Thanks!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63

Great post! this video and the ones posted in the same place on you tube gave me some great ideas to make simple cartidges--nothing fancy like these conicals, just ball cartridges. Rolled a quick six this evening.
