SWISS SCHMIDT MODEL 1882 ORDNANCE REVOLVER PISTOL
The Swiss Model 1882 Ordnance Revolver was another of Colonel Rudolph Schmidt’s designs (not a Nagant design as many believe.) The revolver was designed for the 7.5 caliber round. It was a simple and effective design, with at least one example remaining in service until 1964. Model 1882s with serial numbers under 20,000 were fitted with Bakelite, plastic grips while serial numbers above 20,000 were wooden. A small number of Model 1882 ordnance revolvers were manufactured with a strengthened and fixed lanyard loop for the Swiss Bicycle troops. A special holster/shoulder stock was designed for the Model 1882 by Colonel Schmidt, but was never adopted. A total of approximately 37,250 1882 were produced.
The Model 1882 Ordnance Revolver fired a .30 caliber lead bullet, weighing 107g at approximately 690fps.
