    Help Identify This old revolver

    Well I was in my Grandads room, and we were going through his old weapons and we came across this revolver and I am completely stumped. It's got some sort of marking on it j&l possibly but I cant be sure. The broomhandle(ish) type of grip throws me off too. I was wondering if there was an expert who could help me identify this antique

    It could be but I doubt it, it looks to me more Austrian with the broom handle and that quarter circle that sits behind and around the hammer steers me in some weird direction but I havent been able to find anything exactly like it

    It's from the Netherlands.
    It's either the government-prescribed 1873 officer's revolver, or a civilian version of it. (Officers had to buy their own side-arms.)
    It's the so-called "old model," I think, in 9.4mm, that remained military-standard until the end of WW2.

    The design is by Chamelot Delvigne. The "j&l" marking may actually read "J.F.J. Bar."
