qui est qui: Constant-Joseph Degueldre, armurer
à Saint Remy, Liėge , patents 1864, 1866, 1867, 1870,
12 besides cartridge
self ejecting 9mm pin fire revolver,
appears to have a
serial # 12 on the back of the cylinder, 4¾" octagonal barrel with high front
sight, bore is fine with strong rifling, fine original wood grips.
Under the barrel is a lever; after pulling it downward the cylinder with barrel
moves frontward and a ring behind the cylinder will keep the cartridges to shake
out. The antique revolver
retains about 40% original nickel finish and is in excellent working
order. A very rare revolver and in this configuration I did not find another one
in more than 50 years of collecting.
