I have a St. Etienne mre d'armes French Revolver. I am told it is an 1873 but you may know beeter than I by looking at the numbers on it in my pictures. I know nothing about antiques and prefer to put this gun in the hands of someone who will appreciate it. I have not touched it since I got it so I'm sure it will clean up even more than the pictures. It appears to be in good condition with little or no pitting. Mechanically it feels tight and operates perfectly. Make an offer it is a good looking pistol I am confident you will no be dissppointed.
