Re: More info about Gasser Pistol
Lefaucheux open face type pinfire revolver
6 shot approx 9-11mm
SCHUTZMARKE can also be marked by SCW
The letters LG is used on different parts of the gun for Leopold Gasser
Also Gasser used the arrow through the heart as a marking
Since it doesnt have a front site its a close range posibly smooth bore. Need a picture.
Later models adopted by the Austrian army in 1870 were rifled using center precussion round in 5 and 6 shot models.
This model is older than others that I have looked at online. It would be in a posible range of 1855 to 1865. There are some odd features in the pictures that I have not seen in other Gasser revolvers, or even on other Lefaucheux system types, which would make it more rare.
I would have to guess a minimum of $1200 and a midrange as much as $2200 depending on the other markings. Take the grips off for more markings. The value goes up as you ID the markings. Price will also depend on the demand and economy. Some of the L Gasser prices were going in the $2300-$3100. These had engravings and were plated.
I have seen alot of antique gun prices going back down lately because of the market starting to flood because of both the economy and politics.
