11mm Rimfire caliber, 5.5" barrel, S/N 2533. Numbers match. One of the rarest late 19th century military revolvers as according to Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess, nearly all examples were converted to centerfire and when deemed obsolete went through civilian firms as surplus, most notable by C.G. Haenel in Suhl, and Jules Pire in Antwerp. Left grip stamped "12/25." Internally marked on inside of barrel lug "2533." Cylinder numbered "33." Backstrap marked with military markings "G.R. 17."
This extraordinary survivor retains nearly all of its tobacco-brown original military finish. Grips retain much of their original varnish with the expected marks. Bore is excellent and bright.
