30-shot pin fire revolver made in France, no serial #, maker's name or proof stamps, cal. 7mm. 6" over and under barrels with dovetail front sight. The cylinder depicts 20 cartridge bores in the outer and 10 bores in the inner circle. Pulling the hammer it turns the cylinder only 12 degrees hitting either a cartridge in the inner or outer ring. Double action only, folding trigger, lanyard ring. The revolver is in fine  working order, the condition shows the expected wear. It is the first 30-shot revolver in my possession. Made during  the 1860's.
NRA very good condition    sold
