This is a very scarce Navy version of the French MAS 1873 revolver. Marked with the anchor on the butt, and a rack number, dated 1879. Gun is completely original, with a nice uniform patina. Much of the case hardening still present on the cylinder and trigger guard. The bore is near perfect, mirror-bright. A rare piece, le Revolver de 11 mm Modèle 1873 Marine!
