SOLD - Swiss Schmidt-Rubin M1882 Revolver Rig & Shoulder Stock
Availability: Out of stock
3/25/19 - This is a great example of an antique Swiss Schmidt-Rubin Model 1882 revolver with rare shoulder stock/holster combo. Very few of these beautiful guns were issued with detachable shoulder stock/holster combinations, with an ingenious attachment point on the bottom of the grip. The shoulder stock iron slides into the recess in the grip and locks in place, instantly turning the revolver into a carbine. This particular revolver is a very uncommonly seen private purchase variation, that was initially made for private purchases by the Swiss Army officers, as evidenced by the P prefix to the serial numbers on the frame and the barrel - not to be confused with the large “P” proof that was added to the frame of the guns that were released from the military to the retiring officers. The P prefix on this revolver is actually a part of the serial number and was applied by the factory during the manufacture. Such marked revolvers are extremely rare. The holster-stock combo was also a private purchase item, recommended as an accessory to the Swiss officers, and was not issued by the military, which accounts for its scarcity. The gun is all original with about 94-95% of its original blue remaining, with some finish loss on the cylinder, trigger guard and bottom of the frame. Small parts strawed and screws are fire blued. Grips are checkered horn/Bakelite with a Swiss cross on each side. Mint bore! No import marks! The holster stock combo is in nice shape as well with no defects, but with some wear to the leather as one would expect from a 135 year old accessory. The Swiss military cartouche is still visible on the flap. The shoulder straps are intact. This is a scarce antique set that makes for an impressive display with a shoulder stock attached!
