Victorian Era Michel Ledent (Ml) Liege Belgium Velo-Dog 5.5mm Velo Dog Obsolete Calibre 6 Shot Revolver With Folding Trigger & Swivelling Captive Ejector Rod. Sn 17072 - 17072
The Velo-Dog pistol was a pocket revolver originally created in France by Charles-François Galand in the late 19th century as a defence for cyclists against dog attacks. The name is a portmanteau of "velocipede" and "dog". Surviving examples vary considerably in appearance. All have short barrels. Many of the weapons have a trigger that folds into the body of the weapon when not in use. This is an original Liege made 6 shot, Velo-Dog revolver. It has a fluted cylinder and 1 ½” octagonal barrel (5” overall). The barrel has a blade fore sight and the rear sight consists of a groove in the top of the frame. The barrel's bore is clean with crisp rifling. The metal work is in the white. It has original, undamaged, chequered, Gutta Percha hard rubber grips. It is side gate loading and its double & single action firing mechanism works correctly. The pistol’s hammer is without hammer spur and folding trigger to prevent snagging on clothing. The barrel and frame have Liege ‘crown above R’ & ‘star above q’ proof inspection marks. The frame has a maker’s mark which appears to be ‘Ml’ (most likely Michel Ledent a Liege Gunmaker).
