I need help!! What is this?!
I saw this revolver the other day and had no idea what it was. I'm not to familiar with the older/smaller handguns but something about this one caught my interest. There are a couple engravings on this gun such has on the barrel it says "Marlin New Haven CT U.S.A.F." and "July 1st 1873 or 78", I cant make out the last digit. It has a 3 digit number (260) on the cylinder side of the lug and on the cylinder itself. It appears to be chambered in .22. If someone out there can tell me the history on this and what it is that would be great! Thank you! Also if someone could tell me how to attach pictures to posts that would be great. I do have pictures of the revolver if you are interested in seeing it.
