A155 - Antique, Obsolete Calibre M83 Reichs Revolver









 

 

Introduced in 1879, the Imperial German Government (Deutsches Kaiser Reich) selected the 1879 and later the 1883 Reichs revolver as the standard issue revolver for the army and Navy. The main difference between the two weapons was the barrel length - the 1879 had a 7" barrel and the 1883 a 4.5" barrel. Eventually being replaced by the P08 Luger pistol, the Reichs revolver none the less saw active service by Germany in the First World War.

This example is in very good condition. It carries the Erfurt manufacting banner with a crown on the left hand frame with an 1895 date and Imperial proof marks. The grips are original and are in good condition with a slighty worn / surface damage to the right hand fron grip. The numbers match except for the barrel and the gun has a fine original blue with a Regimental marking to the back of the butt - 8.R.R.6.2.

The gun is in 10.55mm calibre designated obsolete by the UK Home office and can be owned without a licence. A fine historic revolver.
