OC - FINE- all original parts; over 30% original finish, sharp lettering, numerals and design on metal and wood; minor marks in wood.
A rare commercial variation of a Ludwig Loewe manufactured No. 3 Russian revolver with the barrel rib marking, "LUDW. LOEWE & Co. WAFFEN - & MUNITIONS - FABRIK BERLIN 3060". "Crown/V" proofs are stamped on the rib, a cylinder flute and left side of the frame. The modified cylinder and barrel are numbered to the gun. Several cylinder chambers appear to have been shaved and have an oblong appearance. The exact reason for this alteration is unknown, possible easier cartridge extraction in the period of use. We recommend and caution against attempting to fire this revolver as chamber caliber dimensions are out of specification. Provenance: The Dr. Gerald Klaz Collection
