    Here's a Ruby type pistol made by the French, I guess they got tired of buying Spanish Iron.

    I have a couple of these Uniques in my collection - frankly, I think the Spanish stuff looks better, and was better made! These French guns are uglier than the Eibar pattern pistols.

    And thats high grade potmetal, thank you very much!

    Well, I didn't say it was pretty. Actually, the French seem to have a knack of making ugly guns.
