The great thread on steel and leather got me thinking we should have a similar thread for antique top breaks. Here are two photos of my only two antique top breaks. The first one is a 2nd Model American Commercial Russian Model from around 1873 and the second one is a New Model #3 that letters with a 6" barrel and was shipped in 1880, also in 44 Russian. While I'm at it, I've posted a third photo of a 2nd Model Schofield that I sold in order to get the 2nd Model American.

Great guns and the photography is excellent. It inspires me to some of my older guns.
Thanks

Kirk - Another great thread. Your No. 3's are inspirational. The other posts are great too.
Here is a picture of my Model of 1891, SN 45xx.

Once again, I'm impressed with the photographic talent on this forum. I especially like the period accessories that have been included in the photos .... it kind of gives more of an historical context to the top breaks. I'd encourage more fellows with old top breaks to see if they can put a photo together. If you're not sure how to do the lighting, unless you are good with a flash, try and use available light. Throw in some other antique accessories, fool around with the arrangement a bit, and you're good to go.

Wow! There's some beautiful old S&W's pictured here. Amazing!

My 1893 1st Model Safety Hammerless .32 (it was in horrible condition on the outside so I "brought it back" with engraving and old style blueing by Michael Gouse. The genuine S&W pearl handles are not original to the gun but they just looked too good not screw 'em on!

mm6mm6... Great photos! I like the low, closeup shots. Having it loaded gives it a better look. I keep forgetting to load mine when I take the pics.

Here's a another shot or so of my "one and only S&W topbreak":



Home made well worn & used "ankle holster":

Digi-Shots, our 5th Model .38's are very close to each other. Mine was shipped October 18th, 1917 to Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett Company, Chicago.

Your pictures are outstanding! I love that old ankle holster, what a collectible!

This is currently my only top break, shown with period ammo plus period correct silver & gold.

My local pusher has an early lemon squeezer in very nice condition that I have been contemplating, now waiting for my C&R to arrive.

Open a free web account with photobucket, size your photos to be no wider than about 800 pixels and upload them to photobucket. Then copy the bottom address under each photo and paste it into your post here.

Not sure my lowly example fits with these great looking pieces. Finish didn't hold up well, but hardly fired, and solid as a rock. 38 DA. (Came with original box.)

New Model #3 44 Russian w/ 5 inch barrel and adjustable sights. H/R grips. Original nickle finish. Shipped very late for a #3,,Dec/1915. Still considered an antique I'm told because the frames for the #3's were all made before 1899 (?). Doesn't make any difference here anyway, it still has to be registered.

2152hq Beautiful NM#3. All original NM#3's are considered to be antique here in Canada and, therefore, do not have to be registered. What country do you live in?

reldor Very nice old gun you have there ... and judging by the medals, you are enjoying it!

To all: It is a real treat to enjoy the photos you all have been posting. It's almost as good, if not better (because of the beautiful photos) than a trip to a museum.

The Empire of New York,,now presided over by 'The Pointed One',,Herr Spitzer...and his trusty sidekick A/G Andy 'The Hair' Cuomo.
Though the fact that this has to be registered has nothing to do with him or his short reign. The nearly 100 y/o Pistol Permit law in NYS (Sullivan Law) does not recognize 'Antique Firearm' (pre 1899 Federal Classification)for handguns in general and therefore all must be reg. There is a small window for 'unloaded muzzle loader, C&B or replicas of same handguns that do not have to registered, but if you own proper components to do so,,then if must be registered.
****************************
Currently a bill in the state senate to close that 'loop hole' and put ALL antique guns...Both long guns and that small group of handguns into the same status as modern guns for the purposes of transfer..ie; 4473,,NICS, & registration for the handguns. NJ already has such restrictions. Hillary would like that for the whole country I'm sure to make the Village safer.

This is the only topbreak I own; it's a nearly mint condition .32 safety hammerless, 3rd model. I bought it only because it called my name real loud. I believe it's unfired. My Jinks letter says it was shipped in 1921.

Well I don't own any, but my buddy has two that he let's me drool over. The nickled gun is a 3-digit serial numbered Model 3 1st American in .44 caliber, all original, even has the "oil weep hole" that I think only the first 1500 guns had. And the other is a Model 3 Schofield that was offered in 1999 or 2000 I believe. Gotta get me something like these someday... Shoo

A lot of nice and interesting top breaks. Thanks to all for posting. Here is one of my mine, a 2nd Model American.
SN 22XXX, born circa 1877
The holster, gun belt and beaded sheath date about 30 years or so later.

That 8" SA .38 is something else. I never find and antique smiths at garage sales, let alone beauties like that for 50 cents? Here is another .44 DA Frontier circa 1887.



Its not a real high finish example, but the grips retain the patent line.

BRush--

Love your photos. Do you by any chance know the tribal origin of the beaded scabbard?

Mark,

Thank you for your kind words. I don't have a definitive answer on the beaded scabbard. The person I bought it from thought it was made by a a plains tribe sometime between the 1920's and 1940's. I'm not an expert, but the condition appears to support creation within this time period..

Bruce

My one and only top-break: A 2nd Model Civilian Schofield built in 1877. It was passed down through the previous owner's family for over 100 years, then sold to me in 2006.

DC7,

Very nice indeed. Its very hard to find one of the relatively rare 2nd Model civilians in any condition, let alone in such nice condition as yours. Thanks for sharing.
