SOLD SOLD (14/02) Large Frame WW1 Era ‘Montenegrin Gasser’ 5 shot, 11mm Obsolete Calibre Double Action Military Revolver With Ornate Decoration & Antique Ivory Grips. Sn 17159 - 17159
The title 'Montenegrin Gasser' covers a variety of five & six-chamber large calibre revolvers. In 1910 King Nicholas I of Montenegro proclaimed that all male citizens were the Militia and had a right and a duty to own a Gasser Pattern revolver. The standard issue in the Montenegrin military was the Austrian Gasser Model 1870 in 11mm which became known as the Montenegrin Gasser. The sudden demand was met by producers in Austria, Belgium and Spain. Single and double-action locks were used, grips were often in ivory or bone, engraved decoration was common, and the predominant impression was one of weight and bulk. Gasser revolvers were used by the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War 1 and by various Armies including Italy & Yugoslavia in World War 2. The pistols were produced by the firm Leopold Gasser Waffenfabrik in Vienna from 1898 to 1912. This is a very good typically large frame Montenegrin Gasser revolver. The metal work has some original nickel plating tarnished in areas and antique ivory grips. The metal work has intricate foliate engraved decoration and an indistinct inspection mark (illustrated in image 2). The 5 ¼” barrel and frame have open sights. The barrel’s bore has just staining consistent with age and crisp rifling. The pistol measures 10 ½” overall length.

The famous English gunsmith's Deane Adams and Deane had premises at 30 King William Street, London Bridge, London in 1852. Until the arrival of Samuel Colt at the Great Exhibition of 1851 with his display of percussion revolvers, British gun makers had largely neglected this style of weapon except for pepperbox revolvers.
