Any ideas on what this gun is?

My buddy just bought this black powder gun and he's inquiring about it and how much it's really worth. We believe it's a .36. It looks like the navy model 1851 by Connecticut valley arms, but this barrel isn't nearly as long as them.

Army had back straps, navy did not. I would agree it is a CVA 1851.
No scrimshaw on the cylinder and no ram rod, would be period correct.
