    Definitely not a Ruger Old Army. I have one of those, and its different. Thanks Colonel, but I need a fer sure and not a guess. Would like to find it a good home. JW

    It's not rebated (Colt) and appears to not have roll engraving so I'd agree that it's likely for the Remington.

    How about some measurements? Might help a bit.

    I'm quite sure that it is a 1858 Remington cylinder, either 36 or 45 cal. Most likely made by Pietta and probably sold by Cabelas or Bass Pro Shop. Stop in at either store to compare with what they sell.
