M1895 in American Rifleman

Post by luigi »

The April issue of American Rifleman ( I have this old gun ) has an early, unaltered Tula M1895 with No Import Mark. They said value was about $ 650?

Is this right? Seems like only a few years ago a my old pawn shop was selling a them for $150 each?

Yep, any bring back with worn original finish is worth $500 plus and if it is Imperial marked even more- best is year of the revolution 1917. No import marks, no re blue, and matching parts---- YaHoo with holster... Kind of a Rock Island find! Officer model double action is also a plus.

Some goofs are trying to get $350-450 for the rebuilt, Imperial marked dogs with the bill board import mark of the frame. The ones with the import mark tiny at the bottom of the barrel are also sold fast. Most are for looks, they are anemic little shooters. I will take an original Tok bring back any day.

How many pages and photos in the article? What year and what crest, that is the determining attributes for a big price . Lets see that pistol in photos.

Thanks 72 USMC :clap:

There are 3 pictures on the last page of the magazine ( where the "I have this old gun" is normally found )

Is yours actually dated 1895? I have seen an 1896, but I do not think any 1895 dated revolvers are known.

I don't have one! I should have bought one years ago when they were $ 150 !! stupid me!

My original post was in reference to the one they had in the magazine & just thought their estimated value was goofy!
