    I ask for additional information about the origin and the manufacturer?

    Well it may be a Belgium copy, however it is a higher grade piece due to the engraving. ... as it has a folding trigger it was made for personal protection, the grip is very british in the way it was made..and of course it is a pinfire.

    There is no great value in these as most of the finish has gone south..however it is still a nice piece, abd as long as you did not spend a lot on it...a good addition to any collection, but again, not Military

    It'a an open frame Le Faucheux type 'Acier Fondu' (cast steel) pinfire revolver of an indeterminate calibre, but these came in 7mm, 7.65mm and 9mm to name three, there may be others. Probably Belgian made as Dean says, these are very common and range from 250-$600 depending on finish and mechanical condition.
