Re: supposed german ss revolver
Not really worth arguing about. All of those guns were much of a muchness, although the Webleys were arguably the best of the lot. They were all about the same, a solid frame with a swingover type ejector in the base pin. Nagant had several patents, including the idea of an ejector hung from a ring around the barrel as shown in hrf's link, but since the general appearance of most Nagant models was the same as guns made by others, it is hard to tell if a gun was made by Nagant or not unless markings are present.
The oval shape of the flutes would indicate Belgian manufacture, not English.
In any case the idea that such a gun was carried by an SS officer in WWII sends the needle of my BS meter off the scale.
