    I must confess this is something I know nothing about as it is well outside my usual collecting areas, but I have purchased a pinfire revolver in a Black Friday deal. I am posting the seller's photos in the hope someone can help with a bit more information. It was sold as being a cheap model from c1860s:

    Its not in the best of condition and apparently the action doesn't work, but for £35 I really liked it and it will look nice in my colection. I will have to give it a closer inspection when it arrives and see what it looks like after an oil and clean up. If anyone knows anything about it- manufacturer, country of origin, date etc. I would be very interested.

    This one looks very similar, it's a Lefaucheux type. If not maker marked I would think there's a good chance it's of French or Belgian origin.
