Customer Question
I inherited 2 very old...
I inherited 2 very old revolvers my dad brought home from WW 2 and have no idea what they are, not even caliber or maker. on top strap of 1 is stamped revolver mod 1915 or 16 cal 10-35 or36. on left side of frame below cylinder is writing that I con make out and below hammer is stamped BZ43 and on right side just below barrel Z O. On plastic grip at top it has fancy circle with I assume is a H. It brakes open from top with a star ejecter and has a lanyard ring on bottom of grip. Any clue?
