I have an Eibar revolver dated as a 1925 firearm. It is A 38 cal. long revolver..6 shot. It is in fair condition with good original grips of pearl I think. I will post pictures of several markings on it on the main body, cylinder and butt of the stock. Just would like to know the approximate value of the gun. IMG_3208.JPG IMG_3209.JPG IMG_3210.JPG IMG_3212.JPG On the stock butt it is marked Eibar.1925. On the barrel it is marked 38 Long OTC and made in Spain. Serial # 68430 Any help would be appreciated.

I'd say the gun is worth 100-150. If the grips are real Mother of Pearl they might be worth as much as the gun itself. It shouldn't chamber .38 special but if it does they're not safe to shoot in it.

Thank you for the info

The barrel doesn't seem to be fitted property, unless it just has been taken on and off a few times?

I'm pretty much agreed with the above. As Spanish revolvers go, it's one of the better ones, a semi-knockoff of a S&W. Note its resemblance to the S&W, turns CCW & latches the same but without the HE's cylinder latch at the end of the push rod. Some Spanish pearls come close to fitting a S&W k frame & I have used them on guns being refinished by a bit of frame rework.
