    A collector wants to sell me those 2 Colt 44 percussion revolvers- Sheriff & Navy, albeit they are not American/British made like the originals.
    Both barrels are inscribed with the label "Black powder only- Made in Italy".
    From what I can deduce, they were both designed to shoot, and follow the same patent & design by Colt. Moreover, they bear die markings of several armories & are embossed with serial numbers.

    The collector wants about 600$ for each (The ""Colt"" Navy is almost mint in box). Is it worth the investment?

    Cheers.

    maybe he want's a premium for the box and hardware....
    but.....
    there are many internet sites out there that will help you to know what to look for in a used gun.............I highly doubt that even one of them will consider a used kit gun from Italy to be a smart purchase.
    I'd hate to buy someone elses mistakes..... in gun form.

    hands off. also sold on gas stations in posh wooden cases. decorator's pieces, good to drive a nail in. besides this, they also sell red wine with Mussolini on the label...
