README

Gasser 1870

Find it in Pistol - Revolver.

Noticing the Austro-Hungarian army’s movement towards adopting a new sidearm for cavalry units, Leopold and Johann Gasser brothers designed their own revolver in 1869. This pistol based its design on the Belgian Francotte pinfire revolver which was protected by patent, although it is likely that this patent was ignored in order to allow domestic production, as such were common practices around the world during this time period.

Aside from its official adoption in Austria, the Gasser revolver is also best known for its mandation in Montenegro several decades later. Prior to the First World War, King Nicholas I, who ruled the country from 1910 to 1918, declared that each and every adult male citizen of Montenegro is mandated to own a Gasser 1870 revolver.

This massive revolver packs a punch just below .45 Long Colt, and recoils like it should. Don't get too excited with its double-action trigger because the fixed cylinder takes time to reload.
