Classifications of Pistols and Revolvers

The United States Revolver Association has recently classified and defined the various styles of pistols and revolvers. For match purposes it has made the following classifications: Military revolver, any revolver, pocket revolver, magazine pistol and any pistol. A military revolver is defined as a revolver that has been adopted by any Government for the armament of its Army and Navy, and must conform in model, trigger pull, sights and ammunition to revolvers used in military service. Any revolver is defined as a revolver of any caliber, maximum weight, three pounds, maximum length of bore, including cylinder, ten inches.

A pocket revolver may be of .32 or .38 caliber, weight not more than twenty-five ounces, and have a maximum length of barrel, exclusive of cylinder, of four inches. A magazine pistol is one with a magazine other than a revolving magazine, and with a maximum length of bore of ten inches. Any pistol is described as any breech or muzzle loading pistol, with a maximum weight of three pounds, and a maximum length of bore of tea inches. The rules regarding trigger pull are that the minimum shall be four pounds for military revolver, two and one-half pounds for any revolver, four pounds for magazine pistol, two and a half pounds for pocket revolver and two pounds for any pistol. On military and pocket revolvers the front and rear sights must be fixed. On any revolver and any pistol a lateral sliding bar may be used on rear open rights. Front and rear sights in any revolver and any pistol must not be more than ten inches apart.
