    Here it is, my latest prize. It's a big brother to the 6.35 Le Francais pistol, and it's is in mint condition. It looks like it was never fired, because all the edges around the chamber look like they were just cut. I have a hard time believing it's never been shot, but it's sure nice inside! I've been doing some research, and with my limited documentation, I believe this is the "Policeman" model, which means I paid about 1/2 the Blue Book price for it, I can't complain about that!

    The 25ACP version is the Staff Officer Model, and it is supposed to have a 2 and one half inch barrel. The one I have has a 4 inch barrel - I can't find any reference to the longer barrel version.

    The 4" barrel is the "Type Policeman" in 6.35mm, here's one of those.
