    Hi all, Hoping to date a revolver: Q92080 is the serial under the grip. https://imgur.com/gallery/9CzLOR4

    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...

    Similarly to the shotgun information request posted earlier, the family inherited this Colt revolver. Any one has any idea of possible age and price?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Unfortunately this is another from dad's collection that I can't offer much history for. I remember seeing it around, but I don't think I've ever fired it or really remember him having it out. I had to chuckle at the "Made in Italy" stamping... dad would often muse "if you can't drive it or...

    While this gun is familiar, I truthfully couldn't tell you much about it other than it seems to have been well cared-for. There is some unusual wear (damage?) on the end of the barrel that I tried to illustrate - it looks more like friction wear than "scratching" per se, but it's very...

    Dad was a 357 nut, and I remember this being one of his favorites. To my untrained eye it appears to be in near-perfect condition, with virtually no scratches, erosion, rust or discoloring on any material. There is a distinct difference in color between the barrel and frame, which leads me to...

    Full disclaimer: This gun has, by far, the most sentimental value of all of my father's collection and I have no intention of ever parting with it. This old soul comes courtesy of the Philadelphia Police Department - it was dad's service revolver for the latter part of his career before leaving...

    Looking to find out the year and more details about this gun. Value (if any)? Top break, 5 round cylinder, wood grips, .32 Serial A33xxx on grip. Matching number without the “A” on trigger guard and barrel section above cylinder. Thank you in advance.

    Went out for a hike here in the desert in San Diego and found this off the trail unearthed by a heavy rain. It looks to be a Colt 1851 Navy, but I’m not very knowledgeable on this subject. I respectfully ask for some info from you guys, I would really appreciate it. Serial number D61755 4...

    Starting new thread as requested. The photos are all the information I have on the gun with "JD" stamped on the handle frame both sides. Any information on the gun including age range or value range is appreciated.

    I have a Colt .44/40 SAA shipped in 1886. It is in pretty good shape considering its age. I am hoping that I can get an idea of its what it is worth, the best place to sell it and what I should sell it for. Photos attached.

    I recently acquired 2 revolvers that I believe are pre WWII. The 1st is a nickel S&W in .38 i believe it is a Victory model. The photos do not show, but there is a "p" stamped in the back side of the cylinder and the front site has "Parker Hale England" on it, not sure if the photos show that...

    To my understanding I believe it's manufactured around the 1880's or 90's. Its a 3 digit serial number of 184 all matching. And its a 6 shot which I really found interesting because majority of the ones out there are 5 shot models. I tried calling the H&R Department but I wasn't really given any...

    Have no idea really what these three are. Think one on the right is from the civil war and the tale in my family is they have been passed from father to father. My grandfather is selling all his possessions in preparation for his move to a nursing home and wants my help valuing and selling...
