Paul Mauser Experimental C78 (Zig-Zag) Revolver

After spending much of his time in an important collection in Germany, the Paul Mauser experimental C78 Zig-Zag revolver in calibre 10.6mm used for the Patent 3903 “Innovations in Revolvers” (Additional patent to No. 2564 of 2 March 1878 - Patented in the German Empire on April 9, 1878, and effective through 1 March 1893) is available for detailed analysis. Additionally, most of the original letters exchanged in 1878 between Paul and Wilhelm Mauser and Wilhelm and his wife Josephine concerning the development of the C78 revolver are available in the Paul Mauser Archive. This gives us the opportunity to describe the genesis and the chronology of the C78 revolver and the different patent models and prototypes made by Paul Mauser himself.
