GEBR. MAUSER & CIE. OBERNDORF A/N. WÜRTTEMBERG. 1878. PATENT

 

Mauser 1878 patent, medium sized 9mm revolver with 5¼" ribbed barrel on top inscribed with the maker's name and fixed front sight, matching serial # 2478 on frame and cylinder, with some scratches but generally better than 80% original glossy blue remaining, crisp checkered grips, in good working order. These were a very early Mauser design and examples today are very scarce and desirable to the Mauser handgun collector. This revolver was collector-named a "Zick-Zack" revolver due to the various zigzag type slots on the sides of the cylinder. These slots were actually an integral part of the function of the revolver as they were designed to rotate the cylinder during firing. is the early "ring-type" cylinder latch located ahead of the frame as well as a safety latch on the lower left side of the frame that engages the cylinder to keep it from rotating when on safe.
A very rare revolver in very fine condition.  
  $6,000.
