RGSL has now increased its inventory of firearms to include a brand new, never-fired Chiappa 1873 22LR Single Action Army revolver. It replaces an old worn-out revolver of similar design that was used for years by students training in the classroom.
This handgun’s old-school revolving action dates to the nineteenth century and as such has archaic styling, features, and lack of manual/built-in safeties.
These revolvers can fequently be seen in Old-West Turner Classic Movies as a mainstay firearm of the era.
This handgun has been disabled, and will be used to teach students safe handling, use, transport, display and storage procedures starting as soon as the registration certificate arrives from the RCMP. With any historical firearms, users are cautioned to use particular care as the last century has seen substantial improvements in firearms design with regard to safety and reliability.
