    Why are you buying this ? to shoot?, bad ideal, if any thing breaks there are no replacement parts, none. It is a Belgium revolver made in the 1920's by Reunies, Belgium. There is some collectors intrest in these revolvers, one in excellent condition went for 300 dollars a couple of years ago. I can't find any up for sale now. But for a working gun, Bad ideal.

    The gun has been refinished-the plating is not original.
    It should probably not be shot with modern ammunition.
