Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.
For more detail see: LIEGE GUNMAKERS
Caliber 9 mm, pinfire, no serial number.
The length of the barrel is 143 mm, the barrel have five shots, the overall length is 260mm.
The framework is closed, the mechanism functions in simple and double action.
On the cylinder the punch of the Belgian proof house ELG spangled in an oval is reproduced.
On the left behind the barrel one can see the mention “MEYERS/Breveté” (Guillaume Joseph Meyers, Liege). All the parts of the weapon, except the barrel carry light floral engravings.
The grips in drowning are finely squared and the end carries a ring of thin strap.
The pin crossing the cylinder is maintained in place by the visible part on the photographs 11, 12, 13 and 14 which is in fact a spring of pretty form and whose displacement is side.
On photograph 15 one sees this “spring” raised by the displacement of the central axis.
When the axis completely left, one can remove the cylinder.
On photograph 12 one sees cutting in the principal axis which is cliqued by the spring about which I speak higher.
