It looks like a Colt 3rd Model Dragoon. If it is, it will weigh about 4 pounds, unloaded.Can you tell me which model?
I don't know where your info comes from, but it is a well-known fact ASM went belly-up ~2002. VTI has very few ASM parts left in inventory.ASM is still making guns for other companies, they are high quality; and parts are available from Numrich Arms and VTI gunparts. I have a McCullough 44 built in 1974 and it is a pleasure to use.
ASM was an Italian builder, The 1847 Walker was the first build. Imported by replica arms, several change in company names here on this side of the pond. The last I have heard is Cimarron. The tooling and patterns were absorbed by another manufacture in the Gardonne Valley. I am not sure as to say which.I don't know where your info comes from, but it is a well-known fact ASM went belly-up ~2002.
It’s been a ‘sticky’ for over 10 years. Modern Replica Dating by Proof MarksIf you take a look alongside the frame just ahead of the cutout you might see a little square stamp with letters or a Roman number in it - if you tell us what it is we can put a date to your revolver.
@Zonie - isn't it time we had a sticky of the Italian date codes? We get asked maybe once a week about it.
