Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverUsed£ 825
This is an exquisite French pocket revolver in obsolete 7 mm calibre.
The revolver is inlaid with predominantly silver filigree and has ornate Bakelite grips.
These pocket revolvers were very popular in the 1880’s as being concealable and safe with a retracted trigger that drops when the hammer is cocked. The revolver is mechanically perfect with an outstanding level of finish remaining. The manufacturer is researchable.
Clearly this was an expensive revolver in its time and exhibits both engineering and artistic excellence.
The 7 mm cartridges were short lived as a result of its ineffectiveness compared to larger calibres.
This can be held without license as an object of curiosity subject to VCR 2000 regulations which you must comply with to purchase.
An interesting piece of history.
