.44 caliber, 7.5" barrel, S/N 1859. This full silver-plated Model 1890 revolver is engraved in the style of both Cuno Helfricht and Louis D. Nimschke. The combination of Nimschke-style scrolls and Helfricht-style scrolls on the cylinder decorate the revolver. The actual date and name of the engraver is not known, however the engraving is not of the period. Revolver is fitted with two-piece pearl grips, undoubtedly later.
Revolver retains nearly all of its reapplied silver plating. Engraving is crisp throughout. Markings, mechanically excellent. Bore has been silver plated as well - so rifling is not particularly distinct, but shows little use. Right grip panel rates fine with excellent fire. Left grip panel with cracks and repair to interior. This revolver is accompanied by a letter from the legendary dealer in finest firearms, John Malloy.
