Chaineux Joseph Lambert

Here is a nice pinfire revolver, folding trigger, well marked J. Chaineux Patent.

The barrel is “light” and is in the style of models with more than ten strokes of a J. Chaineux.

The markings photographed are few:

Y under crown: countermark of a controller between 1853 and 1877

G in a circle: unidentified.

There should be an ELG on a star in an oval somewhere on the barrel....

The words “ Patent “may relate to the loading door : Joseph Lambert Chaineux filed patent 016 035 on April 14, 1864, which could be the patent for the revolver door presented.
