    A relative "remembers" it's chambered 38 long

    It's been re-finished ---- most markings have been buffed away

    The number "24" apears on the revolver in several places

    It has single action aperance including loading gate and ejector IT IS DOUBLE ACTION !!!

    You show a "Cowboy Ranger" or "Texas Ranger" revolver as made in Belgium in the late 19th and very early 20th century.
    The late Bill Goforth posted:
    "The brand name 'cowboy ranger' was used on a double action revolver that had a somewhat look of the colt 1877 double action (lighting/thunderer models). they were manufactured by a company in belgium called "societe anonume des frabriques d'armas reunies" pre 1918 and 'frabriques d'armas reunies' post 1918."

    Quality is not great. I would not fire it much if any with .38 LC and not at all with .38 Special which some of them were marked for and most will chamber.

    That one has been heavily polished and a reblue job attempted. If it ever had any value, that took care of it.
