I have an 1858 Remington New Army clone in .44 for which I am considering buying a conversion cylinder to use 45LC. I bought the gun at a gun show 16+ years ago. The fellow I was with said it was a Pedersoli and that I should jump on it (I got it for $75), but the guy selling it had no idea what brand it was. I'm beginning to wonder if it's actually a Pietta rather than a Pedersoli. And I want to know for sure before I blow $250 - $275 on a conversion cylinder that doesn't fit.
Can someone tell me (or better yet show me) the difference in proof marks between Pedersoli and Pietta? The revolver does have Italian proof marks, but since I believe both are produced in Italy that doesn't help much...
