MEYERS Guillaume Joseph

The weapon

It is about a revolver, initially planned for cartridges with pin (see the weapon hereafter manufactured by Stevens), transformed for the shooting of cartridges with central percussion (or annular?)

The barrel is with six sides.

The ramrod of ejection is on the side. The trigger is protected by a round trigger guard.

The plates are squared and the stick ends in a ring of cap.

Punches

They are the punches of the bench of test of Liege, that is to say:

Spangled ELG in an oval: acceptance - use of 1846 to 1893.

R spangled: countermark of the controller - use of 1877 to 1968.
