A fascinating piece of firearms history


A fascinating piece of firearms history: an 1873 Russian Model revolver, rechambered from .44 to .22, and heavily modified. If only it could talk, to tell us where it’s been and what it’s done!


I love these old pieces. It always makes you wonder about who owned them and why they made the modifications that they did. I especially enjoy looking at all of the fine handiwork that went into the detailed engravings.
