Re: Checking out the pictures on the NEW look boar

Ejector rod assy and loading gate most resemble a Swiss 1882. Same designer, maybe. More pics, if you're interested.

Covered in Birmingham Post 1904 BP proofs. Matches to the screws. 6 shot in an unknown calibre. No manufacturer's info anywhere.


Here's one proof I couldn't find. Looks like a crown with a highly stylized W underneath.

You should see my wardrobe...and I don't date either.

My priorities are straight.

I just bought this beauty yesterday:

Nickel .38SP Target 100% w/box and paperwork.




I've been wanting this for a long time to have a matching set of both blue & nickel .38SP Targets. And both have "K" serial numbers.

Guess the underwear will have to last a few more months.

Re: Checking out the pictures on the NEW look boar

In case anyone is wondering.....

Would you believe it a 9.4mm CF Cal Dutch Military Revolver Mod KNIL 1891. 6 shot 110mm octagonal barrel.

I guess the Crown W is Queen Wilhimena's proof.

If you weren't wondering, oh well.

Re: Checking out the pictures on the NEW look boar

You just beat me to it!

I saw your picture just now and knew I had seen something like that somewhere before!

I'm pretty sure that it is a Dutch Militairy Revolver Model 1873 OM (old model).

Manufacturers named in my catalogue name three:
P. Stevens from Maastricht,
Eduard de Beaumont also from Maastricht and Leonard Soleil and JFJ Bear from Delft.

Now the KNIL was the Royal Netherlands Indian Army which served until the 1950's in the Dutch Indies, what we now know as the Republic of Indonesia. That timeframe matches the reign of Queen Wilhelmina.

Re: Checking out the pictures on the NEW look boar

Oops, never drink while you try to explain something to a proud owner of a piece of dutch heritage!

You are right, it is a model 91, but it was originally made as a police revolver. In later years it was shipped to
the Dutch Indies and issued to police departments and the KNIL.

They came in 2 calibres and here comes the hick-up: 10mm (10 x 27 Rand -as possibly in Rimfire) and 9.4 mm which was also used in the 1873 model.

Manufacturerwise I
still can name JFJ Bear from Delft or the famous Vickers company from the UK.

Sorry for my mistake, hope I
could still be of any help!

Gunsmoke.
