Great! Let me research this....

Ask Your Own Blue Book of Guns, Firearms Appraisals Question

OK, here's what I found so far. The gun you have is actually a "kit gun" (built by the purchaser). Your model is called the Kentucky percussion pistol. There are no manufacturer's records as to when any particular gun was made, but this kit has been offered since the 1970's.

Need anything else?
