I happened upon this thread while doing research on a 1902 revolver I am thinking about buying. Thank you for allowing me to join. Here are a few pictures of the revolver and also two of what I believe is a commercial/civilian holster for the 1902. I would very much appreciate any feedback as far as estimated value for the revolver. The seller has described the 1902 as being 100% correct and original in very good to excellent condition.
Thanks and Redards
Greg. The correct name for the gun has been found to be the PHILLIPINE CONSTABULARY model made with the large trigger guard to allow more leverage (two Fingers) for double action use, especially with the smaller Filipinos. Because of their use in the Philippines they are scarce in fine or better condition. I paid 800 for mine a couple of years ago to put in my Philippine Constabulary collection. I wanted one to look like "It had been there"
I would estimate 1500 to 2000 as a fair price in todays market for the Revolver you have shown if it had not been refinished. It appears to be original finish, but I would not say for sure without having it in hand to examine.
The question also was raised about the holsters. They were both the standard 1878/1902 holsters modified to accomidate the larger trigger guard or a similar model made to fit the larger trigger guard. They had PC embossed on the holster in place of the standard US in the same position.
Hope that helps.
