Horst Held = Antique Handguns
541 Lynnie Pennie Lane Midlothian, Texas 76065
M. FISCHER, BERLIN
M. FISCHER, BERLIN S.W. made revolver with very uncommon
trigger system, in Winant's FIREARMS CURIOSA, page 258 - 250,
# 304 "fingerless double action revolver designed for man who because loss of fingers can not operate conventional triggers." Caliber circa .38, inside loading gate # 1). No German proof stamp as required starting in 1893, therefore made before 1893 (see Borchardt). The metal parts are bluish - grayish, plain wooden grips with the right showing an age crack. The first model of this type I own in more than 40 years of collecting, and it is scarce. In good working order and good condition sold
With the antique comes The Gun Report, February 1969, The Gun on the Month by Harry Mann, depicting a very similar, probably the same revolver.
