Is this a single shot pistol?
Revolver?
Caliber?

We need any and all markings. Photos are what we really need.

I hear you. I cannot put photos from my electronic camera onto the internet.
I can take photos to the library, they scan them, and email them to my yahoo email account, then I can put them on my photobucket account, and I am good to go.
Maybe you could do that.

I have the pics on my pc, but do not know how to attach them to this reply, I do not see any attach function on this. I can put them on a link for you or can you give me your yahoo mail address to send them too. It may be a 1862 model police or a NYM police 1862 by some pics i found the NYM is no longer available if it is that one, not sure. Is there onother spot on this site that i can load it...THX Nick

Nick - if you go to the "Ask the experts" forum, there is a sicky there that tells you how to get a picture into your post.
You need to have a photobucket.com account (it is free).

Your revolver was made by Uberti. Replica Arms started out in El Paso, Texas with the 1847 Walker. It was later bought out and moved to Marietta, Ohio. It was eventually bought out by Navy Arms. These will be marked Replica Arms Ridgefield NJ. During the transition period you will find both the Navy Arms name and the Replica Arms logo on the revolver. They were manufactured by Armi San Marcos, Uberti, and Pietta at different periods.

Replica Arms is one of the more collectable replica firearms because of its history and the quality of revolvers produced. At this time your revolver would be evaluated at whatever the current value of a new Pietta, etc. plus 30% up (minimum of $300). There will be no more Replica Arms made.

Check out the Replica Percussion Revolver Collector's Association Web Site at http://rprca.tripod.com

Wow, Jim thanks for the quick response, I will check out the site. Not sure if I want to get rid of it or keep it and shot it. I looks like it's never been fired. On the top of the barrel it only says Replica Arms Inc - Marietta Ohio - Italy, Nothing about NJ...but you seem to know much more than I do...THX Nick

What mine has on top of the barrel is REPLICA ARMS INC. MARIETTA - OHIO - MADE IN ITALY
on the right side it has -BLACK POWDER ONLY-
PN Cal. 36
and just above the trigger on the same side it has PN XX8

on the bottom in front of the trigger it has an 8 5 9 which may be a serial number.

I don't know what do you think???

I just paid $280 for a Replica Arms, Marietta, Ohio, 1860 Army. It was made in 1966. Very nice quality, excellent blued finish and the best case colored frame I've seen on an Italian pistol. Really poorly fit grips though, will definitely need to be replaced. Mine is unfired, in the original box.
Gun values are what someone will pay for it today, not what some book says, so I'd say your piece is in the $275 - $300 range.

Thanks
Now I have some idea of what I bought from a neighbor's garage sale for $40.00 with 36 cal lead ball and powder among a few other items.
I didn't have a clue, but it seemed like a good buy. I'm not sure if it's been fired or not.

I'm always reading how you lucky dogs trip over these treasures at garage sales. Lamps, kid's clothes and old bikes; That's all I ever find.
