Barrel length: 314mm
The Swiss gunmaker Casimir Weber bought an existing gun factory which belonged to Jean Frey from Zürich in 1845 where he worked before as an apprentice. Weber continued producing good quality percussion pistols, revolvers and hunting weapons. In 1858 Jakob Reusch joined the company which was then called ‘Weber & Ruesch’. His son (Karl) Casimir Weber in turn inherited the business in 1895 and continued under his own name. He sold mostly foreign weapons which he sometimes improved upon. In 1908 however, he build a target pistol Model “Stäheli”, named after the well-known Swiss marksman Konrad Stäheli which he secured with a Swiss patent 48170.
