$150-$250, depending on condition and the exact manufacturer.

------------------------

check Cabelas for a new one. used ones are going to be going pretty cheap unless there in excelent condition even then you'll be lucky to get a $100. the 1858 Remington model has the top strap and is better if you plan on shooting it a lot, brass frames don't hold up well either.

If you're going target shooting or even using it for hunting, the brass frame will do just fine. I own five .44 cal. 1858 Remington New Army Revolvers, three brass frames with one being the Bison and two steel frames, and I paid $20.00 for a brass frame about 30 years ago and the rest I got within the last two years to present and paid $150.00 - $275. 00 each for them. You can get them at gun shows at around $150.00 for a good used one to $300.00 for a new one and even up to $600 + on a fancy engraved one. An original 1858 Remington will set you back around $600.00 +.

not likely anyone keeps data on re-pro black powder pistols................

Read the markings on it. If it says Italy or Spain somewhere it is probably a reproduction. If it says BLACK POWDER ONLY, it is definitely a repro because they didn't know that smokeless powder was going to be invented.

Nope. Frame not designed for that energy.

Chances are that if you overload the charge in a revolver style black powder pistol, you can blow up the cylinder or blow the barrel off the end of the gun.

Yes it is concealed, but not illegal because black powder firearms are not considered a "firearm".

In the technical sense no it is not loaded via the muzzle of the gun, black powder revolver is accurate as terms go, but they do fall under the blanket of "muzzle loader" in general terms.

There are none produced that I know of, a 209 primer would be over kill in a revolver due to the small chamber and lower amounts of powder.

Richland Arms imported BP guns back in the 70's and 80's mostly Italian and Spanish made guns. Pietta and Armi San Marco were the most popular makers imported. They were located in Blissfield MI. As for value, compare to F Lilli Pietta.

black power or cartridge rounds? Colt made the first "practical" revolver, so this was the first commercially successful cartridge revolver. I can't say about black powder... but you should read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolver <><><> The first Colt revolvers were black powder handguns. The self contained cartridge was invented later.

Most recommend is 3F powder, either true black powder or the "synthetic" or black powder substitute equivalent and between 25 and 30 grains should due nicely.

Navy Arms imported from a number of manufacturers over the years but most were from Pietta, The only number that fits from Pietta is 1995 manufacture #s 184657 - 210667 You can also look for a series of roman numerals or pair of letters stamped on the frame BF= 1995.

I think what you are seeing is in actuality PN which is a proof mark and stands for polvo negro or black powder. It is most likely a pietta or san Marco made gun.

User Avatar

Yes , but FFFG is recommended because it burns better in small cal. firearms.

Armi San Marco made many different model replica percussion revolvers. You would have to know what model revolver your have plus any markings on revolver.
