New to RTI!

We now have Italian M1889 Bodeo revolvers available in fair to good condition. The pistols in this batch were manufactured from 1899 to 1935. These pistols came out of Ethiopia in our most recent batch of surplus. The pistols are in fair to good overall condition with finish wear, the grips do have some wear, marks and scratches from handling use, but are otherwise in fair to good shape. Might have some very light pitting in some small areas, but generally these revolvers do not have pitting. The hammer block is not installed. We provide a 2 reproduction hammer blocks with each revolver. The hammer block may be installed by the customer or a qualified gun smith. (May require minor fitting) The revolver is 100% functional, chambered in 10.35mm. Please note, the revolver pictured above is an example of the condition, it is not the exact revolver you will receive. All Bodeos have an import mark on the right side of the frame below the cylinder.

We also offer hand select options on these revolvers:

Hand Select Date Range (5 Year Range) – this option allows you to choose a manufacture date range for your revolver. We offer a 5 year range, in your order notes at checkout please write your preferred range such as 1914-1919. If you prefer an exact date within this range, feel free to write your preferred date but please keep note that we may not be able to get the exact year date.

Hand Select Bore – with this option, we will select the best bore available out of the lot at the time.

Hand Select Manufacturer – we have seen Mida Brescia, Bernardelli, SFARE GVT, as well some others. If you choose this option, please put your preferred manufacturer in the order notes at checkout and we will select your preferred manufacturer if it is still available. If it is not available, we will contact you and let you know which manufacturers are still available.

  1. Tyler

    This revolver was the talk of the LGS when I went to grab it. Absolutely beautiful piece of history. Majority of finish remains, bore is sharp and clean, functions flawlessly… EXTREMELY happy with this purchase and would grab another if they come back in stock. Such a cool revolver. THANK YOU RTI!!!

  2. Eli

    Very pleased with my new Bodeo, ended up getting a 1925 dated pistol with a good bore. Everything is in great shape mechanically too. Has the expected finish wear and a small grip chip, but otherwise it’s in good shape and honestly better than expected

    I am happy with the revolver I received. It has clearly seen very rough use over the years (many dings, gouges, and a lot of holster wear) but the only major issue I have is that the spring that retains the ejector rod is worn to the point I just pull out the rod. Single and double action work fine and the system which allows you to rotate the cylinder without the hammer falling once you open the loading gate functions too. I’m not 100% sure about the timing, but for a pistol that will mostly sit with me in my chair while I watch WW1 documentaries I’m honestly pleased. With my date select option I received a date in my range so for just over $400 I would recommend. My only poke at RTI is that they have a specifically priced, $1,400 pistol as their photo to advertise these.
