That must be massive, being chambered for a 45-70 Government cartridge. I've only seen pictures. From my understanding they were in limited production, made in Fulton, MI. Google results don't pull up anything on the company. I could only find one in auction which sold at $550.
They were made by hand. Not many exist at all. Value is based on how bad someone wants one.
You can buy a modern 45-70 wheelgun today from Magnum Research for a grand.
The man who produced the FS revolvers has a grandson that buys them. His email is [email protected]

Yes the front site is very tall. The picture Joe the Logger posted is much different from the gun I have. I do have a picture and will try and post today. The frame appears to be all brass. It is truly a massive gun. All my search results returned the same as mentioned above. I didn't know if someone had any intimate knowledge of them. I will try and post a picture today...
