FBB
« on: October 31, 2020, 01:58:57 PM »
Fusav di Bini & Baronio, a short-lived Italian company founded in October, 1977. Most were brass framed 1851 Navy .36 revolvers, primarily for the European market. At least one revolver has a Hawes barrel stamp.

I'm curious, Jim - do you own all of these really obscure revolvers you tell us about? Regardless, thanks for the information that you share!

BTW, I speak/read/write Italian but I don't know what "fusav" means. It may be a title such as "duke" - does anyone know?

Don't I wish!

No, Kim, I just look for obscure marks and abscond with others' photos. It is a learning experience for me, and hopefully others with questions.

Regards,

Jim

Found another FBB marked revolver on GB and posted the seller's photos on this thread. Lots of guns coming out of the woodwork these days.

Thanks for sharing.
Never stumbled over a FBB marked C&B revolver or other black powder gun over here in Germany.
