    French Model 1873 11 mm revolver built at St. Etienne in 1875.  This revolver shows a bright excellent bore.  These revolvers were not blued but remained "in the white" .  This example shows clear crisp markings except for the barrel marking MLE 1873 which is quite thin.  The hammer and trigger show a trace of straw color.  Excellent grips, all matching with a hard crisp action that is double and single action.  Antique status.
