Product Information

An early production French Modele 1892 revolver. Manufacture d'armes de St Etienne (MAS). The date stamp on the barrel is 1894, the third year of production. It was the standard issue sidearm for officers in the French military during the First World War. Revolvers of this date are seldom seen, most were lost in the horrendous condition during the war. They are very robust and reliable revolvers and were used by the French throughout WWI, many seeing action again in WWII. It was the first  European revolver to incorporate a swing-out cylinder that assisted rapid reloading. The modele 1892 is often incorrectly referred to as a "Lebel" revolver.  Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked and dry fired.
