The largest caliber (.44) Mauser Zig-Zag appears less often than the smaller 9mm and .32 cal. models. Is this because the service caliber model was only made for the 1878-79 German test trials? or was .44 Zig-Zag made after the trials as well?

Best regards,
Greg

Hello .45Auto

The 10,6 mm Zick-Zack Mauser revolver was not tested by the Prussian authorities. Th Mauser brothers with their design in two variants came too late for the trials. The "Reichsrevolver", designed by the Spandau Special- Commission was already approved.
Mauser sold the big bore revolvers in smaller quantities for some years on the commercial market . Particularly the solid frame model had no success and is today a very rare piece.
