The Rast & Gasser Model 1898 was a service revolver used by the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War I and various armies in World War II.
The Rast & Gassers featured some new elements of revolver design, as well as older elements already obsolete at the time of its manufacture. A solid-frame double-action revolver, it had a loading-gate through which individual cartridges are loaded, and extracted individually by an extractor rod. The firing pin was located on a transfer piece on the frame of the revolver rather than the hammer, an advancement at the time. Its ammunition is similar to but not interchangeable with that of the 8mm French Ordnance.
The cylinder could be removed by pulling down on the trigger guard and withdrawing the axis pin/ejector rod.
The bore and chambers are excellent, with the bore having mirror shine and sharp rifling. There is pitting on the barrel, both sides. Mechanics are excellent with the cylinder locking up tightly with the trigger pulled and hammer down.
The grips are the VERY NICE CONDITION. They are in excellent condition with some minor dings and marks.
The Rast & Gasser Model 1898 was a service revolver used by the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War I and various armies in World War II. This will make a centerpiece addition to your collection.
