Default MAS Mle 1892 Rvolver

Also known as the Lebel Revolver, that was produced by Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Etjenne as a replacement for the MAS 1873 revolver.

It was the standard issue sidearm in the French military during WW1.

the 1892 revolver was first fielded in 1893 ans was prominent among French Military Officers during WW1 and later French Police until the mid 1960's.

Originally designed to serve as a commissioned officer's personal sidearm, over 350,000 Mle 1892 revolvers were manufactured between 1892 and 1924.

The Mle 1892 was later officially replaced by semi-automatic pistols in 1935, but many saw service during WW2 and brought to the US as souvenirs.

Lots of pictures........
