    Not sure what it is. The only writing on it is the words, "Systeme" above "Efaucheux" on the barrel and a circle with E above LG above a star on the cylinder.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks,

    definitely "lefauchex" type pinfire revolver. appears to be missing extracter rod. please post picture looking down barrel. could it be missing front sight on barrel? i am looking through some books and so far cannot come up w/ anything definitive. these were made in france, belgium, austrohungary and spain and often do not have a makers mark. probably made between 1850 and 1870ish

    Has the Belgian proof mark. Probably a "cottage Industry" gun.

    Thanks for the info everyone. Paid $40.00 for it at a garage sale. It will make a nice wall hanger conversation piece.
