ANTIQUE 1873 FRENCH ORDANCE REVOLVER EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE!

IN ANTIQUE MINTY CONDITION, WITH A MINT BORE, WE HAVE THE NICEST EXAMPLE OF THE MODEL 1873 FRENCH ORNANCE REVOLVER THAT WE HAVE HAD IN THE OFFICE.  THE PISTOL IS COMPLETELY MATCHING AS IT LEFT THE FACTORY IN 1878.  THESE PISTOLS  HAVE HAD A LONG DISTINGUISHED HISTORY.  THEY WERE USED HEAVILY IN WW1 AND WERE IN USE BY THE FRENCH POLICE AS LATE AS THE 1950'S.  DURING WW2 THEY WERE ONE OF THE MOST COMMON WEAPONS USED BY THE FRENCH RESISTANCE.  THEY HAVE SHOWN UP IN SOME RECENT MOVIES AS WELL SUCH AS THE MUMMY AND DEFIANCE.  THIS PISTOL WAS FINISHED IN THE WHITE AND HAD A NICE PATINA WHICH HAS NOT BEEN BUFFED OFF.  THE BORE IS EXCELLENT AND IF YOU WISHED YOU COULD STILL SHOOT THIS, AS THEY ARE SOLID AS A ROCK.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ONE OF THESE I DO NOT THINK YOU WILL FIND A NICER SPECIMAN I CETAINLY HAVE NOT SEEN A NICER ONE.
