Ornate Austrian Gasser Revolver - Anyone Know What it is?

Hi. New member and first time poster.

I was recently shown an antique Gasser revolver and may have an opportunity to purchase it. Despite a great deal of searching, I cannot find any information about this particular gun anywhere I looked. If you have any information on this revolver, or if you can point me to a good source, I would really appreciate it.

wish i had some info for you. If the gun was not very expensive I would probably have taken a chance on it, not knowing anything about it. I am a sucker for unusual guns and that looks very interesting

Closing Thread - Moved to Curios and Relics

Thanks very much for the replies. I will definitely head over to Curios and see if someone over there knows something about this gun. Thanks for the tip!

EDIT: I have opened a new thread in Curios and Relics. Please provide any responses there. The new thread can be found here:
