Identification of manufacturers


#1

Here are some logo found on pistol or revolver grips.
I know this is very far to be cartridge related.
Could you help me to find which manufacturers they are ?

Thank you in advance

Number 6 is Carl Walther


#3

fairly certain the first one (K in a circle)is Henry Kolb maker of hammerless revolvers in Philadelphia PA
The one with a target with bullet holes is Harrington and Richardson.

12 is Etxezaraga Abitua y Cia , Eibar , Spain I hope I got the spelling correct.

#7 is POSSIBLY Gerstenberger & Eberwein,of Gussenstadt, FRG, gripmark on revolvers. It is not identical to the drawing I am looking at, but perhaps a bullseye target is a bullseye target!

John is correct.


#12

Number 9 looks very much like Merwin & Hulbert’s top break .38 revolver.

Since M&H where not manufacturers, the actual producer would be Hopkins and Allen.

vintagegungrips.net/vintage- … grips.html
not sure of the M& H connection or H&A but there are a lot of grips on this site…I can’t find any cartridges there.
