Unknown Revolver
« on: June 25, 2006, 02:30:20 pm »
    Gentlemen, I need your help again.  ;) ;)

    In my Unit,  a young lieutenant has an old revolver, that his father-in-law has given him. The weapon comes from America, a grandfather brought it when he returned to Spain in the beginning of the last century, more or less in 1890-1900.
  I don´t known if it´s a  military handgun, I´m not sure. I have been looking at it attentively and I have not found the maker's mark, alone a serial number. The caliber is perhaps 11 mm. or bigger. It isn´t a Cap & Ball Revolver   
 
   Can Anybody  recognize it?   

       Thank you very much in advance.

     Spanish Marshal

Hi, Marshal
Came up with a pistol with an almost identical grip to yours but otherwise not too similar. It may be a 10.9mm centre fire made by Lagieze (or Lagreze) from Paris. Could not find anything about the guy.

See The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns by A.B. Zhuk, page 69

Looks like an early pinfire revolver.  Good luck on this one.
Listen!  Do you hear that?  The roar of Cannons and the screams of the dying.  Ahh!  Music to my ears.
