Deactivated Austrian Rast & Gasser M98 8mm Revolver in superb deactivated condition. The Austrian Rast & Gasser M98 Revolver was in service in several different variations from 1898 right up until the end of World War Two. They were of a conventional, rear loading gate, double action design and were very up to date for the time, when they were introduced. They fired a 8mm round from an unconventional eight shot cylinder. They also had an ingenious, fold out side plate that made cleaning and maintenance very easy. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly and is legal within the U.K.
