NICE 1870s EUROPEAN Antique PINFIRE Revolver

“ACIER FONDU” in 9.65mm

Here we present an antique Pinfire Revolver, made in Belgium circa 1870. Casimir Lefaucheux patented the pinfire cartridge in 1835 and son Eugene designed the revolver. The pinfire cartridge was one of the first successful self-contained cartridges in history, and the pistol saw prolific use in Europe during the 19th century, even being adopted by some militaries and police. The cartridge had a firing pin built into the side into which would slam the flat of the hammer as it stuck out of the cylinder.

This revolver holds 6 shots of 9.65mm Pinfire. This revolver functions in both double and single action and has a very nice trigger pull. There is a trademark on the left side of the barrel “ACIER FONDU”, which means cast steel. The maker’s initials “H.J.M.” are located on the grip frame under the right grip panel.

The overall condition is very good. The finish has a smooth patina. The markings are clear and legible. The black hardwood grips are in very good condition, with a small splinter off the back of the right panel. The action on this revolver is excellent. Here is a great example of a European revolver with a unique firing system!
