WTS/T - 1926 Eibar Spanish revolver .38 S&W - TRADED
This is a really nice example of the Smith & Wesson styled revolver made by the Eibar firearms manufacturers of Spain in the 1920's.
This particular pistol was manufactured in 1926 (sn#15,XXX) by manufacturer Muguruza y Cia.
The grips are in excellent shape, though one is fitted less well than the other. These grips are made of pressed horn which is consistent with the revolver having been made in the 1920s.
The revolver has several early Eibar pistol proofs (Rampant lion on the barrel, cylinder, and frame) along with the early Eibar mark of admission to proof ("Crowned crest with X inside") and proof mark ("P.N.").
She looks alot better on the inside (muzzle, lands and grooves, and cylinder walls) than she does on the outside, though she still looks good on the outside for a 71-year old. This pistol shoots the venerable .38 S&W cartridge and she functions flawlessly. Finally, here a few pictures taken in the sunlight.
The package up for trade is the pistol along with 40 rounds of modern Remington .38 S&W ammunition and roughly an equal amount of vintage Winchester ammunition (which functions flawlessly) and about a dozen once-fired cases if you intend to reload (total approx. value = $100).
In trade, I am looking for .223 ammunition of comparable value. I prefer Boxer-primed, brass reloadable ammo.
If you are interested in a trade please leave a post here, send me a PM or email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
