If it's Blonde colored wood it's probably a Richland Arms Co. Kentucky style pistol. I have a Richland Arms Flintlock rifle called the MICHIGAN rifle in .45 cal. and a wonderful rifle.The arms are rare now and were inported in the 1960's to early 70's. I assume the company is out of buisness now as there's no info to be had on them. The Richland caplock rifles were dangerous so I'm told by a master gunsmith and a friend. The Yorktown was named for blowing off the drum, stripping the hammer and chipping wood out of the breech area. .
Richland Arms was an importer in the early 70's
7 letters and numbers on a modern revolver. Older guns could have fewer characters. The serial is usually stamped on the frame ahead of the cylinder, under the yolk when you open the cylinder. Any other numbers would usually be markings placed by the end user (military unit identification, police identification and such).
Impossible to answer without a detailed description of ALL markings.
Depends on where it is stamped. Provide a DETAILED description of ALL markings and their location.
Most F&Ws that HAD a serial number had it stamped on the butt- and stamped on the rear of the cylinder. LEGALLY, the one on the butt is the serial number. Many older guns did not have serial numbers, especially lower cost guns.
If it is the 1851 Navy model the book value in 95%+ condition is around $120 and selling price is in the 100 to 140 range, if it is the Andrew target, 10" barrel adjustable sights, the book is around $200 and selling 175 to 250. Both were discontinued in 1994 when Richland ceased importing.
On an older revolver, you are not likely to find a model number, since they did not use model numbers. If you remove the grips, you should find the serial number stamped in the frame under the grips.
Gun show, gun shop, library.
First of all describe the gun. Is it a revolver, or a shotgun? A revolver has a grip but so does a shotgun (actually a for end).
No published sn data.
The production year is not stamped on a gun. It is the serial number that is used to tell which batch was made in a particular year. Go to: proofhouse.com for listings.
i have a 10 ga., double barrel "over & under". stamped on the barrel it says "made in Italy". on the other side of barrel is "Richland Arms Co.". I'm also a bit puzzeled and confused. Know anything ?
What is the number 823 stamped on a ring mean
Probably belgian, not worth more than 50 USD
Probably an assembly number.
If you will post a question giving the markings on the P-38, we will try to give you information on when it was made, and a range of values. Value depends on condition and originality.

From what I've learned on the Internet, the number on the butt is a government inventory control number. The serial number is stamped on the frame of the revolver; look for it after swinging out the cylinder.
It could be the benchmark of the gunsmith who assembled the revolver.
ctg = cartridge
open the cylinder, and it should be stamped there along with the serial number
Provide a detailed description of ALL markings.
Usually caliber and/or serial numbers.
