The Danish M1865/97 was a revolver ahead of its time.
Forgotten Weapons got a chance to take a thorough look at this revolver.
Let them tell you all about the historical Danish 1865/97 Pinfire Conversion Revolver.
Ian from Forgotten Weapons has a Danish military revolver from way back in 1865. This revolver started life as a 11mm Pinfire caliber, then it was then converted them to a centerfire cartridge and was in service for almost 100 years. Now that is just incredible.
It also fired a wooden-cored, nickel plated bullet. That made the bullet lighter and allowed a higher velocity.
