Ronchard Cizeron used it a lot.

-- It looks like the initials are "CM" to me. Can't identify who this might be and I have no record in my Saint-Etienne stamp database." My book on Saint-Etienne gunmakers arrived back home while out in Africa. Will have to wait till I get back to review it.

-- There are a lot of French hammer guns out there.



Salut Argo,

"Le dauphin" est une marque déposée par les établissements Ploton & Barret fabricants d'armes entre 1949 et 1984. Elle ne peut pas être associée à une fabrication de canons.
