Interesting thread indeed. I have a 25 automatic pistol that has EXCAM stamped on it. I may be wrong but I think they were located in Hialeah, FL.
They were. Hialeah was home to a lot of importers of guns.
Thank you Hawg. The spelling on that "Hiawhatha-esque" town name had me stumped there for a minute, so I gave it whirl. I need to check the other markings on the .25 Auto. Seems it was made in Italy or partially?
Thanks Ephraim Kibbey, so Bob's Gun Shop link, is that current or do you know sir? Thanks for posting the links. Z
Do you mean Santa Barbara?
My father in Law and his father played jai alia professionally. Along with my father in laws brother.
You're right! It IS a Santa Barbara!
I wonder why I misremembered.
Thank you Hawg. In my searches I came across a couple of sites that said that Dart is a collectable gun. Any truth to this or just someones creative imagination?
I wouldn't call them collectable unless it's a steel frame. Even then it would have to be in mint shape and is not going to bring much pf a premium. Dart revolvers weren't very good quality.
There are folks (some on this forum) myself included, that have an interest in the older repros and the 60s and 70s is when there were a lot pf players in C&B business.
There are plenty folks that would be interested in a Dart C&B revolver for it's part in history and it's novelty since there are a lot less of them out there then Piettas and Ubertis.
That is not to say a Dart revolver is especially valuable or that one should expect much if any premium for it if trying to sell one, but the fact that it's a less common specimen would get some folks attention.
Then there are also folks who would have little interest, because they specifically want something common and normal like everyone else and may even wring there hands over the availability of spare parts etc.
So I personally agree that a Dart C&B revolver is "collectable" but more like the way sea shells or river stones are collectable than any expectation of cashing in on a fortune.
I have a Santa Barbara 1858 Remington. They are head and shoulders above other makes pf Remingtons and are made from ordnance grade steel.
It popped up in my EXCAM search but I did not investigate further.
Bob's Gun Shop is an ongoing business but I do not know about their EXCAM parts supply.
