    Fired it yet. It looks unfired. Very nice looking one. I had one last year that I got in a swap. Never did fire it. It had been fired some by the previous owner. It was an Italian .44 cal, '51 Navy.

    I wish I had taken the time to fire it. I had not shot a BP revolver in 20 or so years. Last one was a Ruger Old Army. Before that I had an italian .31 cal. '49 Colt Pocket replica. Fun to shoot, but a real PITA to clean.

    I shot it 6 rounds and spent an hour cleaning it so it mostly sits now

    Those are nice Colt 51a ya got SHOOTER13. Fired them?

    Yep, cleaning is a beeeeetch opaww. I thought the single shots were bad till I got revolvers.

    Her is a pic of the 51 brass frame I got last year that I never fired. Old Italian gun. Guess they weren't real sharp about marking them back then. Barrel had .44 Colt stamped on it.

    F. LLIPIETTA. I think that is an Italian company. Anyway I ordered it from Cabalas severalyears ago to replace my first Navy Arms.44 that I traded for a Gibson guitar.
