Thank you Jesus,
You might be a little disappointed with what I have to tell you, but keep in mind it is a decent built revolver economically made to sell at a lower price. If kept in good working order will be safe and fun to shoot.
Schmidt revolver frames were made of a Zinc-Copper-Aluminum alloy which melts at a temperature below 800 degrees F. making these revolvers illegal to sell in South Carolina, New York, and several other states. It is illegal for licensed dealers in S.C. to even repair these revolvers. All Schmidt revolvers will have "Made in Germany" marked on the outside of the revolver.
These pistols are of better quality than the current production Heritage Revolvers they share the same price catagory with,...making them generally a good bargain for the price.
The value of your revolver in excellent condition would be around $250. In very Good condition around $200. In Good condition around $125.
