Unknown - 2 type lefaucheux revolvers - Double action (DA) - Pinfire (Lefaucheux) - Pistol - 7mm Cal
Good - 1750 - Barrel is Rifled - Not deactivated

lot of two Lefaucheux-type 7 mm calibre pinfire revolvers:
The first one:
Total length 19 cm, barrel 8.5 cm, grooved barrel, engravings on all parts of the weapon, nickel-plated block, extractor rod functional and present, gate ok, beautiful grip plates engraved with flowers, marked ‘R’ with a star above on the body, and on the cylinder, ‘S’ with star above and ‘ELG’ , mechanically ok, nothing to report, it works well, good operation; as I am not a gunsmith please have it checked professionally before shooting.
For the second:
Total length 19 cm, barrel 8.8 cm
Lefaucheux-type 7 mm calibre gunpowder, engravings on all parts of the revolver, nickel-plated, grip plates engraved with dragons (note that one of the grip plates has been glued, please see photos), gate present, beautiful engravings on the revolver and cylinder, markings on the body: ‘M’ with star on top, and on the cylinder, ‘M’ with star above and ‘ELG’. Extractor rod present, but was glued, does not move. Overall, the weapon works mechanically; a small problem: once the cylinder is turned, the trigger has trouble firing, this would need a bit of servicing. As I am not a gunsmith please have it checked professionally before shooting.
For both guns, the barrel grooves are present but faded.
For the condition of both revolvers, please take a look at the many photos with this post - antique revolver, beautifully decorated.
