    But I am not sure if it's real or not. I says the following on it:

    Made in Italy
    Dixie Works Inc.
    Black Powder Only -Cal 45
    No serial #

    Only thing I could find related to Dixie Works is the below:

    Anyone have any information on this by chance? I paid $40 for it. Some crappy pics below, we are heading to the zoo so I can take better ones later. (Yes, I know the pics suck and have feet and other crap in them, I took them quickly to post before I leave.)

    No idea what that is, but it could have been made by Palmetto Arms or Pedersoli. The rifle isn't looking too good.

    For some reason Italian black power guns used to be the hotness in the 50s and 60s. That looks like an inexpesive version. Clean metal with Rem Oil and fine steel wool and hang it on the wall.

    They still are. Uberti and Pietta make great reproduction blackpowder arms.
