    So I’m trying to figure exactly what my great uncle has here. So I’ve done a little bit of research very quickly and within a couple minutes I was able to find very basic info. I get it’s a British bulldog style, possibly a webley and Scott??? The main thing that keeps throwing me off is the...

  5. Recommend an accurate, reliable handgun I can add a rail to?

    Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    I'm a little bummed out. Got a call from my gunsmith. He said he was not recommending adding the rail to my S&W 19-3 revolver. Now I'm thinking about selling it and getting another handgun. I love my 19-3 because it is a revolver and therefore shoots reliably. And because it's fairly accurate...

    The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    My Dad has an almost full box of pinfire bullets - Lefaucheux 7mm they came with the antique pin-fire revolver he purchased from a dealer. He had them tucked away in a drawer for at least 25 years and if they are the same age as the revolver, that means they could be 100 years old (we think...
  11. 19 century British Bulldog help

    Technical Questions & Information
    Hello everyone, I'd greatly appreciate a bit of advice since I've been fighting with this for several days now. I got a very dirty and rusted 1870-1890 Belgian British Bulldog a few weeks ago and I took it apart for cleaning/conservation. I'm a novice to antique firearms, but rather experienced...

    Technical Questions & Information
    Hello, im not sure this is the correct forum for this question, but it seems to be so here goes. I noticed recently on my Taurus 85 that the teeth on the part the manual calls the extractor seem to be sheering off. Almost like when the part that rotates them hits it grinds a bit off. They...

  16. An Old Iver Johnson .32 top breach revolver

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Hello, I am new here and recently picked up an Iver Johnson .32 hammerless revolver. The internet said this is the best place to have someone look it up. I am less worried about the resale value, and more concerned with if I need black powder rounds or if I can shoot standard .32 S&W Shorts...
  17. What year is my Iver Johnson?

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    I recently acquired an Iver Johnson break-top revolver as part of a trade. The novelty of it was what I found appealing and I wouldn't mind just having it around as a paper weight or conversation piece. I'm not really concerned about the value of the piece. On the other hand it might be fun to...
  18. Colt .22 "New Frontier" revolver - unknown age

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    I don't know a lot about this gun - I recall seeing it, but never firing it. There's obvious discoloration (I'm calling it "tarnish"; perhaps that's not the proper term) on the entire frame. I want to think that's indicative of this being an antique of sorts... but my gut says it's more...
  19. S&W .22 revolver - unknown age

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    This guy was often seen firing on silhouettes at the range - I believe it to be early-80's, but that's just my guess based on my memory of it. The trigger and hammer appear to have been neglected; they're not actually rusted, but there's an obvious degradation of the metal material that I'm not...

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Another of dad's beloved 357's, I'm sure this gun has had more than its fair share of use. He had so many similar models to this one it's hard for me to really tell them apart in order to provide any history. The hammer and surrounding area appear to be showing some signs of rust, but I...
