This revolver’s bore grade is excellent, finish shows very slight patina on the push rod as well as slight wear visible on the bottom of the loading gate. NRA grading criteria would be “excellent”. Holster included. Please refer to photos for markings and overall state. These are photos of the gun you are buying. Some markings and wear marks may not appear in photos. “W+F 1882 7.5mm” is stamped on the right side of the receiver under the cylinder.
First issued in 1882, these 6 round capacity revolvers fire a black powder 7.55 mm swiss ordinance round and were originally designed for non cavalry officers, but was later issued to non commissioned officers and general crew members of certain units in the Swiss military.
This war relic revolver features hard rubber grips, blued steel finish, 6 shot capacity, as well as a very unique and interesting load gate and push rod design that enables the operator to rotate the cylinder to extract spent casings and reload by pulling the trigger without engaging the hammer. All of these features and the overall condition of this revolver would please any curio or war relic collector.
W+F Swiss Model 1882 Revolver W/Holster SN: 9345
