.41 Long Colt is on the list of obsolete calibres so should be OK , its an ugly bugger though, and looks to have been converted for quick-draw use
Edit thus the "Fitzgerald" in the Title I guess

If that was a real Fitz special, it would have a much, much bigger price tag! And even though the engraving is good, it’s not quality. A nice Fitz “replica” I’d say, and in just the right calibre to give a considerable mark up on the price it was probably picked up for Stateside.

It would be nice to own, none the less, but way too rich for my wallet!

Hopefully not destined to maim or kill some unsuspecting youth in the months to come, assuming C-19 has missed them...

I think that is what the seller is angling at,

"I will post a hardback dual English/German language copy of "Manual of Pistol and Revolver Cartridges, Volume II, Centrefire, American and British Calibers", by Erlmeier & Brandt, as cited by the Home Office Guide mentioned above, to the buyer for further study, if they so wish."

In other words, here is how to make cases for it
