thank you James,you have just identified a relic revolver I have from WW1,I knew it was French that's all.it was dug up in the Kemmelburg area Belgium.
Hi, Harry! Mine is dated 1914 on the barrel, so it's definitely WWI vintage. It shoots nicely, but the ammunition for it is very expensive, so I probably won't be shooting it anymore. The design is very interesting - if you unscrew the large screw at the spur on the backstrap ( it won't come out, so it can't get lost ), the frame opens up in a "butterfly" fashion, exposing the internal springs. Although they were replaced by an automatic pistol by WWII, they were still carried as a service arm in the French army. I'd LOVE to know where this one was post-1940 to get its odd "holster"!
