    Barrel stamp

    Anyone know what the barrel stamp on a repo 1858 army type revolver with vertical font pwi inside a diamond is.
    When in doubt, mumble, when in trouble, delegate.

    ​Could be a proof mark.

    If the stamp is located on the bottom of the barrel toward the back and visible with the loading lever down it is the manufacturer's mark. This one is Pietta's (F.A.P. Fabbrica Armi F.lli Pietta di Pietta Giuseppe & C. S.r.l.).



    I'm not familiar with the stamp as you describe it, can you provide a photo? The 1858 Piettas I've looked at have the diamond logo on the right barrel flat and the FAP is in uppercase letters.

    Stamp

    After investigation believed to be Witloe precision. Letters are actually pWi encased in a diamond.
