Charles François Galand
Revolver GALAND with slipping barrel and cylinder, with peripheral extractor “automatic”, with rebounding hammer.
The lever of trigger guard involves by dropping the barrel-cylinder group which slips on the prolongation of the axis, thus creating a space necessary to the simultaneous ejection of the casings.
Charles François GALAND (1832/1900) French, bench in Liege street Vivegnis, 296 where it had a workshop, probably because of the skilled labor and very economic of the workmen arms manufacturers of Liège.
This is why the majority of its manufacture carries the punches of Liège.
He also had a deposit-sale in Paris street of Hauteville, 13.
