    Default Spanish made WW1 French Revolver

    Just thought you all might like to see a bit of an oddity. I have a Spanish made Orbea revolver. From what I can find it was made for the French during WW1. It is a Spanish copy of the Smith and Wesson design chambered in 8mm Lebel revolver and definitely has that been used look. I havent gotten a chance to fire it yet, but I was lucky to find a single box of Prvi Partizan.


    Note the star stamped into the butt of the grip.
