Hello and Bonjour à tous,
This pretty little revolver if different in many ways from the 7 shot .22 revolvers in the recent Lefaucheux book.
This six shot revolver has a Lefaucheux Paris address on the top strap above the cylinder. There are no proof marks of any kind. There is an assembly number 1 on the grip strap and on the cylinder. I have not taken it completely apart to see if the number 1 is stamped into any of the other parts.
Under the grips there is a marking consisting of the letters LF over a star in an oval. Under the grips is also a number which is different from the number on the outside of the butt. Neither one of these serial numbers are preceded with the open pistol LF trade mark.
The ivory grips have a monogram below a crown. I wonder who this might have been?
Thank you and merci in advance for sharing your knowledge regarding this revolver.
