    ~ M 1870 Single Action Gasser Revolver ~


    A rare bird of firearms, the Gasser has been manufactured in a number of versions and calibres, both for the army and for the civilian market.

    Our example is a 9.25 inch barrel firing an 11.3×36 mm centerfire black powder cartridge, which can be compared with a .44 calibre cartridge.

    The barrel of our example is rifled and the serial number 108636 matches on all its main components.

    The manufacturer’s stamp ‘L. GASSER, Wien Patent, Ottakring’ is still visible on the left side of the frame.

    The top near by the rear sight the imperial proof mark cam be seen as well.

    The grip is made of chequered wood.

    ~ The Gasser ~

    The M1870 Gasser was a revolver chambered for 11.3×36mmR and was adopted by the Austro-Hungarian Cavalry in 1870. It was an open-frame model, with the barrel unit attached to the frame by a screw beneath the cylinder arbor. The arbor pin was screwed into the barrel unit and fitted into a recess in the standing breech. The cylinder was gate-loaded from the right side, and a rod ejector was carried beneath the barrel. A unique safety bar will usually be found on the right of the frame, below the cylinder. This carries pins which pass through holes in the frame to engage the lock mechanism. Slightly retracting the hammer allows one of these pins to move inward, preventing the hammer moving forward again when released. The pistol can thereafter be carried safely when loaded. Pressure on the trigger withdraws the pin from the path of the hammer before firing. The M1870 Gasser became the Austro-Hungarian cavalry revolver. It chambered a long 11.25mm centerfire cartridge which had earlier been used in Fruwirth carbines.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel is 9.25 inches (23.5 cm) and the overall length of the revolver is 15 inches (38 cm).

    It weighs 1.4 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The metalwork is excellent with most of the blue being preserved.

    The wooden grips are worn.

    There are some spots of surface rust on the cylinder. Please refer to the pictures.

    It cocks and releases with a strong spring.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or the revolver can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
