i think it will look good with my brass framed rifles , and its different than my open top 1851 , 1860 , walker , but should pair up nicely with the 1858

Nice, what is it?
I'm guessing some southern made one replicated?

Copy of a Spiller & Burr revolver.  The barrel key in the brass frame is a give-away.  Some Colt "copies" had a top-strap frame (good idea with the brass frame; or steel even).  Colt didn't have a top-strap or use brass for either frame or barrel yoke - just the trigger bow on some models and the grip frames.

That is a very nice revolver. I really enjoy shooting the black powder revolvers and need to expand my collection. May have to consider one of these.

I finally took my Pietta 1851 Reb Model 44 out to shoot a few weeks ago. I was extremely impressed with its accuracy. At 25 yards it was shooting a 4" group. For comparison.  My 1911A1 with a Wilson Combat barrel leaves a 6" group with two extra holes at the same stand off distance...

These black powder wheelguns are a hoot. Only issue is you get about three cylinders worth of shooting and they tend to become fouled jam sammiches !. I recently started loading 45 long colt and 50/70 with 'trail boss' black powder equivalent smokeless powder and have been  impressed with the 'clean results'. No more hot soapy water scrubs , no more ballistol & water baths. And it's so much more fun !!!. Shooting 45 long colt in a schofield replica SA revolver is a blast !!!.

I see a Paterson and a Dragoon in there. Even a nice conversion.
And all I have is an old run down 60 and a 51 to play around with Cry
Thats a heck of a collection.

What you don't see there is the Modern percussion Colts (2nd. and 3rd. generation) I have 4 of those that I shoot. " 1851's a Whitneyville Dragoon and a 1860 Army.

The ones that you mention in the image are all original with the exception of the one you describe as a Dragoon. It is in fact a 1850, or 1860's Mexican copy of a Walker.
