The Model 1870 Gasser was a 11.25 mm revolver developed for the Austro-Hungarian cavalry. The barrel was screwed on under the cylinder arbor and the barrel sat in a fitted breech. The cylinder was gate loaded from the right.

It fired 5 rounds. It saw action in The Great Patriotic War in  Russia. Otherwise it was  beautiful piece of engineering.

And probably in the First World War, with the Austrian-Hungarian cavalry.
