I noticed that you have a French 8mm Lebel revolver,,,
I have one that I've owned since I was 11 years old.
I paid $5.00 for it at a farm auction...

I too wanted a Model 15 since it was what I carried in the USAF,,,
I found a LNIB specimen with box, tool kit, and all...
It was a Winchester 189? pump in .22 short,,,
I paid a whopping $5.00 for it at a farm auction.
This was around 1963 or 1964,,,
