MAS 1892 Revolver 8mm - Last French Antique Revolver

The last french military revolver to be considered a prescribed antique, the MAS 1892 was a big improvement to the 1873 and 1874 Chamelot-Delvigne revolvers made by the Manufacture d’armes de Saint-√Čtienne (MAS).

The 1892 was chambered with a new cartridge of 8mm replacing the weak 11mm that was chambering both 1873 and 1874 models.

Here is the serial numbers for the 1892 french revolver
