Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #1261, 11mm German Ordnance, 7 1/2" barrel with an about very good bore that shows scattered pitting throughout its length but strong rifling. The metal surfaces of this 1880 dated revolver show an original blue finish that is fading to a dull gray patina with scattered freckling and oxidation staining and a couple marks from safety operation and disassembly. The smooth grips rate good plus as-cleaned with a 1/2" crack at top of left panel, a minor chip at front of left panel, scattered dings, handling marks and scratches. All visible serialized parts are matching and the front left side of frame is marked "1882" possibly a date-of-issue marking. There is a unit marking on the bottom of the grip which reads "B.1.A.6.11" and an original brown leather M/79 holster is included that is marked on the inside flap with some indiscernible writing and it shows flaking and crazing throughout with a few stains and abrasions. A solid early Reichsrevolver overall. (207879-386) {ANTIQUE} [Craig Brown Collection] (800/1200) SOLD FOR $1,380.00
