The trigger is folding under the frame (without trigger guard!) the rod with head of nipple is articulated. The barrel is with 8 sides with semicircular front sight. The plates of grips are invisible.

The weapon carries the lawful punches of the proofhouse of Liege, that is to say:

ELG* in a crowned oval: final acceptance, of use of 1893 to 1968.

R crowned: rifled bore, of use of 1894 to 1968.

AL*: countermark of the controller, of use of 1877 to 1968.

The weapon carries also various marks is:

C crowned: it acts with my opinion of marking of the manufacturer of cylinder of Herstal.

320A: gauge.

O - P - WB - 78: markings of workshops or subcontractors.

5394: number of the weapon.

F.F. in an oval lying: I think that it is the mark of the manufacturer but this one is not indexed in my documentation. Several names could correspond of which the most probable can-being. (?):
