Hello, I was recently given a revolver by a friend who inherited it. We believe it is pre 1899. I cannot find much information on the net about it. Its a 5 shot single action .32 top break with Chicago Arms Co on top of the barrel. The handle is pearl over plastic? Serial number 259### found on bottom on handle only. The only information I have found is conflicting. One site says the Chicago Arms Co (1880-1895) revolvers were made by Meridian firearms (1904-1915) so those years conflict. Is there anyway to confirm it is pre 1899?? Thanks guys!!
