1870s European Sidearm with Attached Folding Dagger!

Here we present an antique Delhaxe Systeme Pinfire Revolver with a Folding Dagger, made in Belgium circa 1870. Having a dagger or bayonet more or less permanently attached to a firearm, even pistols, was not unheard of in the 19th Century. However, examples are scarce. This is a fantastic piece that combines Casimir and Eugene Lefaucheux’s invention of the pinfire cartridge and revolver with a 5-1/4 inch Kriss dagger. The blade locks in place.

In 1835, notable gun maker and inventor Casimir Lefaucheux patented one of the first self-contained firearms cartridges. This very early design included a case with ball, powder and primer, but what made it different from what was to come later in cartridge development was the “firing pin” that projected out of the side of the case. It was this pin that was struck and detonated the primer inside. His son, Eugene, would build on Casimir’s invention, designing a pistol to take advantage of it. The hammer would be flat and smash down on the side of the cylinder, from which the pin of the cartridge would project. This revolver and pistol design would become prolific, especially in Europe throughout the 19th Century, being adopted by militaries, used by civilians and police, and even being sold for use during the American Civil War. Many makers made both licensed and unlicensed copies.

The overall condition is very good. The bore is in good condition with nice rifling under a layer of dust. The action is excellent.
