    Thanks for the info I’ll look again tonight. I do know that the various parts are stamped with “21”, which don’t seem to jive with the serial number. But then I don’t know that they are supposed to. They could be an inspectors mark for all I know...

    Looks to me like one of the early imports from Dixie, or Navy Arms, or even Western Arms. You might email a set of the photos to Dixie and Navy Arms and see if they recognize `em. I believe Western Arms is history though.

    If there is a WESTERNER'S ARMS barrel marking the maker is Uberti.

    I'm not the OP but thanks to the post from madsweeney I have found my newly aquired Pietta 1851 Confederate Navy was made in 1994. Much later than originally thought. And it appears to be unifired although handled and dry-fired quite a bit. Nipples do not appear to be smashed and flared but I think new stainless nipples will be the 1st order of business

    These are the only other markings I can find.

    Found these marks on the inside of the triggerguard of a Uberti 1860!

    Mine hasnt got markings such as these. Mine has only “21”, which is stamped on all the parts.

    Assemblers numbers - to keep all the components together during the manufacturing and assembly process. Most gun-makers do it.

    Unsurprising, given Aldo Uberti's initials. It stands for Armi Aldo Uberti.

    My Uberti revolver of the 1960's has the Uberti stamp as well as the Navy Arms stamping.

    That shield stamp should be some clue as to who made the pistol.

    If you are writing about the small coat of arms stamp in the third image of post #1, it is the acceptance of gun proof stamp of the Gardone Val Trompia, Brescia, Italy, proof house. ALL Italian-made firearms are proved there.

    The loading lever looks more like ASM, Uberti, or similar, not Pietta.
