1882 revolvers were employed by the Swiss Military and manufactured between 1882 through 1929 in Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik Bern, a Swiss federal armory. Designed by Rudolph Schmidt, the 1882 fires a black powder 7.5mm round and has a capacity of 6 rounds. Several variations of the revolver were produced; the earliest and most valuable models can be identified with their octagonal barrel. Late model revolvers named the 1882-29 are a more simplified version of the pistol that were made to help ease production time and costs. 1882-29 models can be identified by their round barrels.
