http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=90427It was my grandfathers. Serial number 85612. I think its a 38. Not so much concerned about value. It's in rough shape. Thanks!
If you're sure there's no letter prefix to the serial under grip, it's an antique made 1894-95.Sorry, it's a top break revolver. The serial number I gave is from the left side of the grip frame under the grip. It looks to be a 38 caliber. It holds 5 rounds.
I agree with both description and value.That's what I thought. That first character I think is an A. Anyway, It's not even close.
So we have what is probably a 1903-1904 2nd model black powder only with missing letter prefix and mismatched barrel? Correct?
And in this condition I doubt it would be worth more than $50. What do you think? My grandmother got real excited when I told her it was an antique (before I knew it wasn't). I told her it wasn't worth much anyway but I'd like an estimate because she doesn't seem to believe me.
