I've never seen that one. Do you know where the picture was taken?

It looks like a Lebel, but just a guess. We had one in our evidence room once. Honkin' big unwieldy thing. 8mm if I remember right.

Had the same kind of latch or whatever at the cylinder and a band around the barrel where the front sight was.

Ooops! Then again, a second look at the photo makes me think it is a top-break.

Then again...

Was that the revolver with interchangeable parts internally? Which could even be detail stripped fairly easily?

I think you win the prize IrishCop just looks by the way of the cylinder the one the soldier is carrying might be a later version or a bigger caliber looking at the band on the back of the cylinder. :duh:

Dunno what it is, but it out to be the "star gun" in a Steampunk movie.
