    Re: Need a little help with new(old) revolver

    Welcome to TFF.

    The left side release identifies the antique first model with single post top latch made in 1894. This style latch was found too weak even for the black powder ammo then made, and they changed to the more commonly seen double post latch the following year. (The last patent date is '93, not '98)

    Value depends on original condition, but usually less than $100.

    It should not be fired.
