RARE Dutch HEMBRUG Antique Model 1873 “New Model” DOUBLE ACTION Revolver
Here we present a C&R Dutch Hembrug Model 1873 “New Model” Military Revolver chambered in 9.44mm, made circa 1899-1913. The revolver was adopted by the Dutch army in 1873 and was manufactured by several Dutch gun makers. The Model 1873 was in the Netherlands’ military service from 1873 until 1940. The “New Model” revolvers have a round barrel and a letter prefix in front of the serial number. Approximately 13,020 of the “New Model” revolvers were made during this production run, numbered in batches of a thousand with the letter prefix. It’s very rare and unusual to find these revolvers, especially in the condition as is this one. It was first issued in 1873 and saw high usage of service in the Dutch East Indies as a very reliable black powder revolver. Very uncommon here in the United States.
The overall condition is Good. The action is excellent. The bore is bright and reflective. Original blue finish. “HEMBRUG” is engraved on the right side of the frame. “D 71” is stamped on the left side of the barrel. The hardwood grips are smooth.
