Argo, your math is a bit off.

65 cm is 25.6 inches
70 cm is roughly 27.5 inches and
75 cm is 29.52 inches.

My Ideal has 75 cm barrels. Not as common as 70 cm barrels but not rare either.

raimey:
model numbers on robusts can show up in three different places;

clearly marked on the bottom metal, usually in conjunction with "Robust" (but if there are no manufrance identification marks accompanying the proofs, i would doubt that marking to be present)

stamped onto the bottom of the plume (rib) somewhere forward of the barrel flats

and on pretty late guns (?) marked on the top strap, concealed beneath the lever.

if it is marked 222, then according to charts found here in the french documents, it's a post-war gun - production from 1946 until 1963.

best regards,
tom

The standard l.o.p. on French guns is 13 1/4"? That would be 1" shy of the standard of the day for most makers.

Fab500 looks to believe the above gun in question is Billwolfe's gun from 2013. Merci, Fab.

Salut Argo44,
J'ai mis le lien ci-dessus, car je pense que le modèle d'ellenbr est un Robust 202 de la période 1931/1939.
