    Anyone here knows the make and model of revolvers used by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo and Andres Bonifacio during the revolutionary war?

    No one seems to know at PHILIPPINES DEFENSE FORCES FORUM

    I was just kidding around. His bolo and revolver were kept in the legislative building (now called the National Musuem). Unfortunately it was burned down during the war. I hope they kept a record of what kind of revolver it was. Check the national museum :)

    kung hindi ako nagkakamali ay colt .45 (long colt) revolver ang gamit nila that time...(double action)


    Colt's first heavy frame, .45 inch Calibre, double and single action revolver manufactured between the years 1872 to 1909. This is an army model. Many of this model were made on Government order for Cavalry use. These differed from the standard design in having a much larger trigger guard and a longer trigger to permit use with a gloved hand. With these variations, this arm has been known as the 'Alaskan' and the 'Philippine' models.

    I posted the following to the Forum mentioned:


    Just MHO, but while it's likely that more modern Colt or even S&W revolving pistols were available to Spanish mainland officers (perhaps even moreso to officers in Cuba), the decrepit condition of the Philippine garrison would have made it unlikely.

    I think that's a .45 Colt. Different from the .45 ACP used for the 1911

    Nice one!
    Do you know if the Eibar Model 3's were in .44 Russian or .44 American?

    The Eibar Model 1884's were not Model 3's(which are single action only) they were copies of the S&W .44 DA First Model (which are double action revolvers) which were essentially Modified(by installation of the double action mechanism) Model 3's and were chambered in .44 Russian throughout the production of the First model from 1881-1913.:)
