We love antique and vintage collector guns! Just arrived is a rare addition to the collection here...a Gebruder Mauser & Cie Reichsrevolver, Model 1879 or M79 in 10.6mm. The serial numbers match, and the barrel is marked GF, denoted as Bavaria. According to historic records from Harder's book, only 8003 of these revolvers were ever produced by this manufacturer. Of this number, only 5003 were from Bavaria. On page 216 of Jan Still's book, only 46 were reported to have dates 1880, 1881, 1882, 1883. The manufacturer mark on the frame is encircled with the date 1880, and the frame date of 1882. The scarcity and condition of this revolver make this a wonderful piece of history to add to your collection that you will not want to miss out on! The butt of the revolver is marked B.5.A.r.1. 104. for a Bavarian Artillery regiment. The overall finish we rate at better than 75-80% mixed blue/patina. The action is tight and bore is excellent. The walnut grips are beautiful with a few handling marks. As this is an antique of a caliber not commercially manufactured, it may be shipped directly to your home. All we require is a clear copy of your drivers license for our records. Buy now with confidence!
