1843 44 caliber Navy revolver engraved by WL Ormsby New York serial number a14510 serial in its original box how much is it worth?
The Navy revolver was not .44 caliber (it was.36 caliber), and was not made in 1843. Without seeing the gun, will tell you it is likely you have a reproduction of the Colt revolver made in Italy by Pietta. You will need a hands on appraisal by an experienced dealer or collector. Modern day reproductions are in the $200 range, depending on condition. PS- Ormsby invented the machine that performed roll engraving. While he was an engraver, his actual engraving was for printing plates for bank notes. Not guns. We have been asked about a revolver with THAT serial number at least 5 times, reinforcing the belief that it is a reproduction.

How much is a blackpowder pistol engaged by W L Ormsby on May 16th 1843 with the serial no 75901 worth?
There are only two possibilities: Either you have an original 1st generation Colt Navy 1851 or 1861 or Army 1860 in perfect mint brand new condition (otherwise that line would… have been faded away), then you should reckon with at least USD 8,000 (and in that case you are a reputed collector and ought to know by yourself) OR this is just a modern Italian or Belgium replica of the 1970s, then it's between USD 50 and 300, depending on the model, design and condition. Look up at gunbroker.com
That would depend on Mr. Ormsby's reputation in the engraving community, whether it was done at the factory or after market and overall condition of the piece.

ol timers such as yours are collectable. however, price is based on condition overall. I believe your revolver was made about 1854. based on information you provide…d, and condition is real good, I would say you have a high price gun. suggest you pick up a copy of: bluebookinc.com the book contains gun prices, new and old. there are also a number of gun auctions available thru your computer. once you find an old timer gun site best you send pictures for an estimate on sale price..........good luck unlikely you will be able to find out who it was sold to......... possible it was used during the civil war.

Is a 1843 colt black powder pistol engraved by w l ormsby serial number 49844 an original or a replica?
read what is on the barrel. it will tell you who made...................
The firearms section of Answers.com is full of questions by people asking what their firearm is worth. In pretty much every case the answer is the same. None of us can ass…ign a meaningful value to your firearm without actually being able to inspect it, assess its condition, and determine if it remains operable. One of your best options for finding out what a firearm is worth would be to take it to a Cabela's store, and inquire with the administrator of their gun library. You could also take it to a gunsmith who can give you an opinion, though he will never give you what it is actually worth since he will need to sell it at around that price to make a profit for himself.

Unfortunately, this is not easy to answer. Liberty is not a brand name, but a model name. A model name that was used by several companies spanning over 60 yrs, and several nat…ions. The majority of these were very inexpensive firearms, generally grouped under the term "suicide special". Values may range from $25-$50 for the newer guns made in Germany, to $100 or so for older US made guns.
