Antique VERO MONTENEGRO 11mm GASSER Revolver in NICKEL & BONE, Engraved
An Eye-Catching Sidearm from Montenegro!
Here we present an antique Vero Montenegro marked Gasser Style Revolver, manufactured in Europe circa the 1880s. A Montenegro revolver is basically a large frame double action revolver chambered for the 11mm cartridge and primarily made in Austria, Belgium, and Spain. These were developed by Leopold and Johann Gasser of Vienna, Austria but made by numerous small Belgian, Spanish and Austrian firms.
These “Gassers” as they are frequently called were adopted by Austria at the end of the 19th Century but have become more strongly associated with tiny Montenegro due to King Nicolas’s proclamation that “Every male citizen of Montenegro is a member of the Militia, and therefore not only justified but also obliged to possess at least one Gasser Pattern revolver.” Since everyone had one it was fashionable to make them into status symbols or fashion statements thus many are decorated, some more elaborately than others.
The overall condition is very good. Nice nickel finish over the engraving. Solid bone grips. The action is strong and tight all the way around. The bore is in good shape. This is a big revolver from Montenegro that would have been a status symbol as well as a sidearm!
