So, my wife had an uncle pass late last year. He, evidently, bequeathed us a Pietta cap'n'ball revolver. The next time the Mrs (@TeacherSmurf) sees family, it shall be picked up. Any idea on what this is, exactly?

It kind of looks the copy of a Griswold & Gunnison I had back in the late 90s, but had to sell due to hard times.

Anywho, just curious. Once it is in our possession, I can add more pics. Thanks much.
 
Not sure as to caliber at the present. My father-in-law texted the Mrs about said and included the pic, but that was about it. The week after next she, and the potato-heads, will be with her family and will likely pick it up then. So, should know more then. Was just curious. Thanks, friends. :)

It's hard to tell from the picture but could be a 44 .
Here is a picture of mine .
It is a 36 Cal your barrel looks bigger. Or it's just me I don't know.
There fun 15 to 20 minutes to load and six shots in a few seconds then another 20 minutes to load.

I swear this diet I’ve been on has my spidey senses tuned in to food I can’t have. I’m seeing things damn it!! :p

@CountryGent that guy looks like a fun way to send some lead downrange. I watched a guy at my range shoot a BP rifle and started wondering what one would look like in my safe. :)
 
Man yer takin' yer time!
The guy at my range loaded up some red tubes with powder. He poured them down the muzzle then loaded the ball I assume. Rammed it down and fired. Seemed to go fairly smoothly. I know virtually nothing about muzzle loaders but that cloud of smoke and the smell was intoxicating. :)
