    I have a Liege Acier Garante Modele 1912 Brevet 25ACP pistol. This pistol has Spanish Eibar region proof marks, and Belgian smokeless powder proofs. I believe the Liege Acier was a proofing clearing house in Belgium for imported arms, and maybe Belgian produced arms also. I would hazard a guess that the pistol in question is a piece proofed through the Belgian system - other than that, I don't know.

    "Acier" is simply the French word for "steel."

    Any other markings? So far, it sounds like a Lebel... except for the jeweling part...

    Yes, I did. I thought I had replied to all of them... Covad is possibly the absolute crappiest ISP, but I am forced to use them to maintain my DSL connection.
