z Sold ~ Frontier Defender Revolver Made for the American trade.

RJT#2822 -


This revolver was made in Belgium for the American market in the 1880s. An interesting ANTIQUE REVOLVER in 44-40 WCF with a 5 in. barrel and strong rifling. It is stamped "Frontier Defender" on the top strap and the top of the barrel is marked ".44 CFW". I know CFW weird huh, most of these were marked "Frontier Army"and and marked "44 WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE" they were sold by Sears Roebuck and Mongomery Wards in the 1880s, but this one is of a better quality and was probably offered by a more prestigious supplier.  "These were done in a time when companies competed so much with one another that they refused to put another company name on the cartridges they produced. 44 WCF was for the 44 Winchester Center Fire cartridge. UMC loaded it with the CFW stamp standing for Center Fire Western. They are still basically the same. The CFW headstamp was used prior to the 1900's." The gun locks up tight, cycles, and all parts function.

The rear cylinder face shows the crown over "ELG" in an oval proof mark. The butt plate has an attachment for a lanyard ring, but the ring is missing..  The gun is smooth gray throughout with excellent quality checkered walnut grips. The cylinder have the number "50" on the face.

These revolvers were carried in the Old West.
