Gasser M1870 IRL

A Gasser M1870 in reality

The Gasser M1870 was a revolver chambered for 11.25x36mmR and was adopted by the Austro-Hungarian Cavalry in 1870. It was an open-frame model, with the barrel unit attached to the frame by a screw beneath the cylinder arbor. The arbor pin was screwed into the barrel unit and fitted into a recess in the standing breech. The cylinder was gate-loaded from the right side, and a rod ejector was carried beneath the barrel. The M1870 Gasser became the Austro-Hungarian cavalry revolver. Despite being outdated, it was liked among Austrian Storm troops during World War I for its stopping power.[1]

Battlefield 1Edit

"Though long obsolete by the start of the war, the Gasser was still favoured by Austrian stormtroops for its stopping power."
— In-game description
The Gasser M1870 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1.[2] It is only available for the Assault kit.

The Gasser is notable in that each shell has to be ejected manually during reloading. This makes the reload for the weapon very long indeed, significantly longer than most of the Assault's primary weapons. The Gasser M1870 fills the role of high-damage, low rate-of-fire pistol for the Assault kit.
