The original Snub-Nose?

I came across these interesting pictures today, of what appears to be a 44 CAL Confederate copy of a 1851 Colt Navy.

I don’t know the origins of the pictures, or the history of the gun, but I can only imagine what the intended purpose of the modified gun was. Reloading it didn’t seem too much of a concern, as the ramrod assembly was completely removed.
