SOLD SOLD (LAY-AWAY 29/08) C1870’s Large Frame, Imperial Russian Army Tula Arsenal ‘Russian Model’ Smith & Wesson No.3 .44 Calibre S&W Russian Obsolete Centre Fire Calibre Single Action Revolver. Sn 17672 - 17672
The Smith & Wesson Model 3 is a single-action, cartridge-firing, top-break revolver produced by Smith & Wesson from circa 1870 to 1915. It was produced in several variations and sub-variations. Smith & Wesson produced large numbers of the Model 3 for the Russian Empire by special order. Smith & Wesson nearly went bankrupt as a result of their Russian contract production, as the imperial government assigned a number of engineers and gunsmiths to reverse-engineer the Smith & Wesson design, and then began to produce copies of the revolver—both in their own arsenal at Tula and by contracting other manufacturers in Germany and elsewhere in Europe to manufacture copies of the revolver. The Russian copies of the S&W Model 3 revolver were generally of very high quality, but considerably cheaper than the S&W produced revolvers. This led to the imperial government cancelling the order for significant quantities of Smith & Wesson–made revolvers (which Smith & Wesson had already produced), and delaying (or refusing) payment for the handguns that had already been delivered. This Imperial Russian Tula Arsenal made revolver is chambered for the UK obsolete black powder centre fire cartridge .44 S&W Russian. It has a 6 ½” barrel (13” overall). The barrel's bore has just light staining consistent with age and use and crisp rifling. The top of the barrel is stamped with Russian Cyrillic script (illustrated) and number ‘4152’ which is repeated on the butt of the grip frame. The grip frame butt also has a small Russian Tula Arsenal ‘Star’ inspection mark. The revolver retains its original blue finish and its wood grips are secure. At some point in their life the grips have been decorated with pin point pierced decoration incorporating the initials ‘PH’ on one side. The weapon's single action firing mechanism works perfectly. This is an antique obsolete calibre weapon and no licence is required to own it in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17672

SOLD SOLD (11/09) Early 19th Century, Large British Royal Navy Bosun’s ‘Press Gang’ Cord Bound Flexible Cosh With Integral Weighted Ends & Wrist Cord. MISC 880 - MISC 880
Press gangs were well known for the physical force they used in recruiting men into the Royal Navy during the 17th and 18th centuries. It was, however, a practice which Parliament had first sanctioned several centuries earlier. The Crown claimed a permanent right to seize men of seafaring experience for the Royal Navy, and the practice was at various times given parliamentary authority. Impressment was vigorously enforced during the naval wars of the 18th century by Acts passed in 1703, 1705, 1740 and 1779. The men pressed into service were usually sailors in the merchant fleets, but might just as often be ordinary apprentices and labourers. During the wars with France from 1793 to 1815, an impress service operated in British coastal towns. Although further laws passed in 1835 upheld the power to impress, in practice it fell into disuse after 1815. This is an original early 19th Century cosh in the form used by Royal Navy Press gangs when ‘pressing’ men into Naval service. Those resisting ‘the press’ would often face assault and restraint to enforce their ‘recruitment’. The cosh is tightly bound in waxed cord. The cosh measures 13 ½” length and has a plaited wrist cord. The shaft has weighted ‘club’ head ends which double as pommel ends for striking and to assist grip. The price includes UK delivery.
