Engraved 1858 Remington Reproduction

injuninjun Member Posts: 22 ✭✭
I've just purchased a used, fully engraved, brass-framed 1858 Remington .44 reproduction. Blue octo barrel, Case hardened engraved hammer. The engraving looks to be factory laser done. No maker's name on gun. "A.S.M. Black Powder Only 44 Made in Italy" and a serial number B35251 under plunger on barrel. "PN" stamp and "AU" in square box stamp, both forward of trigger guard.
Gun came in wooden (walnut?) box with the usual accoutrements-flask, bullet mold, etc.
I am assuming it is either a Uberti or a Pietta, but I would like to know which.
Can anyone give me some info on this pistol? Maker? When it was made? Value?
Thanks for your time.

    "ASM": Armi San Marco, Italian gunmakers
    "PN": Pulvero Negro (Italian for "Black Powder")
    "AU": Manufactured in 1989

    Value depends on the quality of the engraving, accessories and case. Please post pictures.

    Similar cased pistols have sold on gunbroker in the $250 -$350 range. Since it's a brass frame and if it's factory engraving, I'd put it about in the middle of that range, but that's without seeing it.

    Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I had my computer off. Thank you for the info. Spider, on "Ask The Experts", on here, put the value at about the same as you did. With two good opinions saying the same, that sounds like I've got the right answer.
    Thanks for replying.
