The Apache Revolver is certainly an intimidating weapon. It features a knuckle duster grip and a double-edged knife in addition to its pepperbox gun. Both the knuckle duster and the knife could be folded up, creating a very compact, yet multi-functional, weapon. Unfortunately, it was not the most effective of weapons. It had limited accuracy range and proved to really only be useful at very close range.
This weapon was produced during the late 1800’s by French manufacturer, L. Dolne à Liege. The gun became popular with the violent gang, Les Apaches in early 1900’s-France. It was the association with this notorious group that resulted in the Apache name.
The Apache Revolver is chambered for 7mm ammunition, though a 9mm variant exists that was rumored to have been used by British forces during World War II.
Most likely due to its age, the Apache Revolver can be difficult for a collector to find. If you are lucky enough to find one for sale, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 for one, depending upon its condition.
