Did I read correctly, in Eugene Heers' book, that they experimented with the '29 revolver in 9m/mPara?? Putting new barrels and rechambering the cylinders??....
And, I have the dates from my wife....Besuch in Zurich, September 2017, das selbe Hotel Helmhaus, auf Limatquai....

Gruss,,

Rick.

Helmhaus is well known (to me *g*) and near the place I work. We can meet for lunch or coffee in Zurich.

I'm not aware of any experiments with 9 Para in Swiss revolvers. But they did many things we never know....

If we can get some more Swiss enthusiasts (we need to be about 10 people) I will organize a visit to the Kriminalmuseum. They have a large weapon collection there.
