Jean Chamelot was not a gun maker but rather the business partner and probably lawyer of Henri Delvigne, and co-owner of Delvigne's patents. The firm operated from Liege from about 1850 until 1875, and their stream-lined designs are very unique and easily recognizable. The most important aspect of their design is the way the mechanical parts are arranged on a central steel plate running down the middle of the frame, under the grip, however. It has the entire mechanism mounted on it, and it can be serviced without having to disassemble the entire gun. This became important in 1873, with the design of the MAS French Service revolver. This particular specimen is in fine condition, with some of what looks to be original blue intact on the frame and cylinder. The action is crisp and accurate, and the cylinder indexes correctly. The bore is very good, with strong rifling and minor spotting. Marked "IN.ON CHAMELOT & DELVIGNE BTE" on the side of the frame, with pre-1878 Belgian proof marks. The grips are very good, without much wear and a faint line on the right side which may be a repair or marr of some sort, but it is barely visible. The faux-leather clad case is very fine, with undamaged, original fabric interior, good hinges and lock. There is no key, however. The exterior is very good, with a few handling and storage marks. No serial number, rated fine overall. DISCLAIMER: All Old Guns Canada guns are sold as antiques and we do not make any representation as to the shooting safety of any of them.
