Pinfire revolver type Lefaucheux, made in Liege in the 2nd half of the 19th century (ca. 1860). It is a six-shot version in 7mm black powder with a hexagonal barrel. Lefaucheux types of this calibre have the dubious honour to have both the death of Vincent van Gogh as of Arthur Rimbaud on their conscience.
Includes the original bullet emitter, spring hammer/cock well. Handles in very good condition. Mark (ELG) on the cylinder. In 1810 Napoleon introduced the legislation on the legal inspection of firearms and compliance with it. A new test stamp, an oval with the letters ELG was introduced.
This firearm is still completely original. Nos of all parts correspond.
From before 1870 and thus counts as deactivated in accordance with the stated rules laid down in Article 18, weapons and ammunition sub1-d and sub-2 (exempt). No sales under 18 years.
