Belgian "Reform"

Pistol with central percussion, manual repetition and block going down which resembles very well to extremely rather pistol REFORM.

With the difference loan that here the block goes down from the top downwards.

The 4 barrels are superimposed and calibres is 6,35mm.

As the punches indicate it, the weapon was manufactured in LIEGE. It does not carry any mark of manufacturer nor of patent what seems to indicate a copy or an adaptation.

Research in the patents is remained vain.

The weapon carry a pretty engraving in hollow bottom representing a crown on the left (royal?) and of the sheets of oaks and on the right a cross surrounded by two swords.

Plates out of wooden of walnut (?) sheets of oaks are also carved.


The weapon carries the lawful punches of the proofhouse of Liege, namely:

ELG on star in a crowned oval: final acceptance post 1893.

Double B reversed under a star: countermark of the controller post 1877.

R crowned: rifled bores, of use of 1894 to 1968.

PV surmounted of a stylized lion: test with the powder without smoke, of use of 1898 to 1968.


No mark of manufacturer is visible on the weapon.

ND - Ml and FL under a plate are not identified marks of subcontractor.
