I bought this Black Powder Remington 1858 Revolver at an Auction. There are no manufacturers or proof markings on it. The Navy Arms logo and Black Power - made in Italy - .44 Cal. are stamped top and side of barrel. There is a three digit number and marking (maybe FAP) on the frame under the left grip panel. there appears to be a number 2??? on bottom barrel. The cylinder measures 2.020" front to back and the barrel is screwed in leaving four threads exposed at cylinder discharge. Anyone have the same Pistol ? I have a feeling this dates back at least 25 years.

Its the only Navy Arms Italian manufacture i am aware of it. It may just be an old import.. they have been importing them for decades from what i understand.

EDIT-

Found out for you.. FAP designates that it is made by Pietta. Probably imported in the 1970s.

Thanks for your Help. I appreciate the Information. The lack of Proofs may indicate a Kit Gun that was assembled in the U.S.

A gentleman on another forum contacted navy arms with almost the exact question. This is what navy arms said:

Unfortunately we cannot provide you with any information via the serial number as the gun was sold by the original NJ office of Navy Arms. Their old log books are with the BATFE.

However, please look for the following markings to identify the manufacturer:

U inside of an octagon - Uberti
<fap> - Pietta
Palm Tree - Palmetto Arms
ASM - Armi San Marco


Again Thank You. Four Manufacturers supplied Navy Arms I guess.

Congratulations, I would love a Uberti.
Since my earlier Post I have purchased two Uberti's. One a Remington Model 1858 and the other a Model 1851 Navy with the "Replica Arms Marietta Ohio" Logo on top the barrel. This one is like new - 100% Blue with no signs of ever being fired. The Cylinder has no drag marks. Manufacturing date is 1965. Replica Arms was bought out by Navy Arms in the early 1970's
