Pietta this is a faithful reproduction of the popular Civil War arm used by both the Union and the Confederates. It has the standard 8" barrel and is a .44 caliber ball six shooter. This type of weapon was also in use by the Western Expansion settlers, peace keepers and villains well into the 1870's. This gun looks new and comes with instruction book.
