NHM Model 9
The NHM Model 9 is a full-steel six-shot revolver. NHM is an abbreviation for Nanno Hübenbecker from Mölln (which ceased to exist in the 1980s). Model 9 was set up for the 9 mm rim, the cylinder bearings have a deeper bore so that the Korth gas cartridges can be loaded. These revolvers differ externally in some small changes. Compared to types 3 and 4, the type 1 has a different milling in the cylinder for the cylinder lock and a different grain shape, and the hammer is also different. The type 1 and type 3 have a further milling or further breaking of the upper frame edge. The NHM logo is also different.
