Large Frame Pinfire Revolver by Hill

12mm, 6.875" barrel, S/N 77714. Blued finish, checkered hardwood grips with lanyard ring in butt. Double action, 7-shot revolver. Left rear of frame marked HILL LONDON over the serial number. Additionally marked {CROWN}/FA 2197 on right of topstrap. This mark suggests the reviver might have been produced elsewhere in Europe and imported to England. Birmingham proof marks. Likely retailed William James Hill who worked as a gun maker and retailer circa 1860-1897.


Good. Retains some areas of bright blue with significant finish loss due to flaking and wear. Exposed metal with an oxidized brown patina. Mechanically functional, missing the ejector rod which has been replaced with a piece of modern ball style chain. Bore good with moderate oxidation. Grips good with some scattered bumps and dings.

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500
