Fancy Germanic percussion single action revolver by Reinhard Stahl in Hassfurt, as marked on cylinder. 5 shots, .36 caliber. 5-1/2" octagon barrel. Metal parts are nicely engraved, out of the examples we have seen, this is one of the fanciest, especially the quality of the grips. Metal parts have a medium patina overall with slight granularness. Wood grip is beautifully grained with a grain crack present on both sides. Grip is smooth with original surfaces and minor marks from handling. A scarce Civil War period import revolver that could have been used by either side. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
