Is it real or is it a reproduction?

I reciently aquired a black powder revolver. I am eager to learn if this is a reproduction or a part of history.
The cylinder has a sail boat engraving all the way around with "Engraved by W.L. Ormsby New York"
The barrel has A. Uberti & C. Gardone V.T. Italy on the side.
The top of the barrel says Western Arms Corp. Santa Fe N.M.

Any information about this pistol would be very helpful.

Thanks

I can understand your curiosity, but this is botany. Don't even know where to direct you--"Sports", maybe? Try posting this there, or Google "A. Uberti & C. Gardone V.T. Italy", and good luck with it!
