~ A 1922 Dated Italian Castelli Model 1899 Revolver of 10.4mm Calibre ~
Whilst these are rare enough pieces, this revolver has a pleasing copper finish to the round barrel, something I have not seen before.
It is the model carried by the NCO’s and Officers of the Italian Army during WW2.
The pistol is new specification, comes with its deactivation certificate dated 2011.
The serial number ‘E1303’ is stamped on the right side of the frame.
On the opposite side is engraved the model ‘Casteli’, the production year 1922 and ‘Gresci 7’.
Above this is the maker’s mark.
The caliber is marked on the barrel along with a proof mark.
~ Dimension ~
The barrel length is 3.5 inches (9 cm) and the overall length of the revolver is 8.5 inches (21.5 cm).
~ Condition ~
Very tidy condition, the grips are complete.
It can be cocked and dry fired.
*To the customer’s Attention*
Prior to sale, this firearm will be deactivated at the current UK Spec. This will imply a waiting period between the moment of purchase and delivery in order to obtain the deactivation certificate.
Thank you for your understanding.
