My Father recently came into possession of the revolver his Grandmother had used as a home defense weapon (unloaded naturally) when he was a boy.
The gun is has a nickle finish of which a solid 50% - 60% is gone. There is no loading gate; only a cut out for loading. There appears to be a small latch on the bottom in front of the cylinder that I am guessing would release the cylinder pin and allow it to be removed. The grips are hard black plastic. The following words are on the gun (along with what I suppose is a serial number):
Foreland Arms Company Worcester, Mass
Patd June 2, 1891
I did not get a good look at the gun and therefore I do not know if it is SA or DA. I do not know how many rounds it holds or what caliber, but it appears to large for .22 and to small for .38
Can anyone help me identify this weapon?
Thanks in advance!
