A 9mm pinfire revolver from Belgum made between the mid 1850'3-1877 and a Webley revolver in .450 Davis (BP version of the .45 Auto rim) from approx 1880. Both are in excellent condition, not replicas and ready to fire if I load ammo into the chambers. I have much "older" handguns but they're replicas. I also have BP rifles but the OP asked about handguns.

Just for fun, here are some of the prices listed for parts in the, one sheet, fold out manual:

Frame, round butt ..........................$38.85
Rear sight assembly ........................$10.00
Cylinder, with extractor, pins & gas ring ..$21.75

Refinishing, either blue or nickel - $12.85, change of finish - $16.60

According to www.westegg.com/inflation/infl.cgi

As of 2012:
$19.40 = $113.15
$38.85 = $226.58
$10.00 = $58.32
$21.75 = $126.85

I'm Posting pics of my Colt 1908 .25 auto vest pocket from 1920. My dad's PFE Titan .25 auto from late 1960's. My dad's Colt New Police Issue .32 Revolver (unknown of year), and old .22 Derringer that my dad received from his father that has disintegrated and my dad's recently purchased Mossberg 500 Revelation for Western Auto Supply Company which is from approximately late 1974.

I've got a S&W top break 38 revolver from 1889 IIRC. It was my great grandfathers gun from when he was the town marshall.
