Revolvers issued from the Patent of September 10th, 1868

Le revolver 1868, le LF 27.

Introduction :

Le revolver « 1858 » et le « 1870 » de Marine sont les plus mythiques de l’épopée Lefaucheux.

Autant le revolver 1858 sera entièrement fabriqué dans la Manufacture de Saint-Etienne, autant le revolver 1870 le sera dans les ateliers du 194 rue Lafayette à Paris

L’histoire du revolver « 1870 de Marine » commence par une demande du 13 mars 1868, du Ministre au Président des Marchés Spéciaux de l’Artillerie et se terminera en septembre 1872.

Rarement vu aussi content :slight_smile:

Very happy, because finding a model that you have in the back of your head but that you have never seen a copy before is like finding the holy grail for a collector.
I had the same feelings the day I found the LF 28 (model 1854).

I may have snuck a few pictures of it the couple days it was at my house: :grin:

Got also an other one, but this time a 7-shot 9 mm, the shape is already closer to the M1870…
