What are some of your favorite revolvers that qualify for a Curio and Relic designation, over 50 years old? Pictures of these oldies but goodies would be appreciated.

Here is one of my neater 1895 Nagants - made in 1944. They were a great buy for some time - as low as $65 inc a lanyard, holster, cleaning rod, and screwdriver. Not as plentiful now, but still a great buy - especially if you shoot the proper 7.62 x 38r ammo, whether it is the now hard to find Russian target, Serbian 'Hot Shot', or Italian Fiocchi ammo. Neat piece of Victorian engineering - designed by the Belgian brothers Nagant. Sadly, they have been re-arsenaled so many times, the innards drag a bit making the SA/DA trigger pull >20 lb. Still fun!

PS Those are modified .32-20 cases with 100gr LDEWCs, really homebrew ammo, and a Victorinox Smurf (blue) Farmer SAK.

Among some of the most beautiful handguns on the planet are the big old "N" frame Colt revolvers. I have one in .38-40. But plenty of cartridges that started life as black powder, 44-40, 32-20, .44 special, 45 long colt etc. Just like owing your first Mercedes!

I have a WWI S&W N-frame that is fun to shoot, but this WWII gem is perhaps the most accurate revolver I have. It can do one-hole groups when I rest it. And it's trigger action is sweeter than most modern custom jobs. This is a US Navy marked .38 Special "Victory" from 1942:

I've got an obligatory Nagant Revolver, but never have taken a picture of it. Gotta get around to that one of these days, and I need to redo the ones of this one too. The gun looks much better in real life.

Colt Pocket Positive in 32 New Police, with Mother of Pearl grips. Gun was made in 1912 I've been told.
