Ok, let's get back at it. What else is written on the gun?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

has a diamond looks like AP inside of it. FLLIPIETTA. has a star stamped on it. another star with PN stamped under it, next to it is stamped BF. the stars are in a little circle. sorry took so long its pretty pitted

F. LLI Pietta is an Italian company that made reproduction black powder pistols....everything from a Colt 1851 Navy to a model 1858 Remington.


In normal, average working condition you can find these for sale all day long in the $150 to $200 range. If yours is pretty pitted, you are probably looking at $50 to $75 at best.


I hope this helps....Please remember to complete the rating process for the answer so that we can close the question out.
