Large pinfire revolver, marked on top of frame "MEROLLA FRERES SYSTEME BREVETTE". 6" barrel of about .42 caliber bore. Metal parts have simple foliate engraving and a black finish overall. Checkered wood grips are good, showing average wear and use, free of cracks and chips. Interesting takedown system with two screws which, when removed, allow the barrel to slide off forward. Extractor absent. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
