I have been given a revolver by my mother-in-law. My wife remembers her father purchaseing it about 25-30 years ago. It is .32 caliber, 6-shot, 3"barrel (3.5" to the face of the cylinder) and says
"ACERO DE ALTA RESISTENCIA" on one side of the barrel,
"GABILONDO & Cia ELGOIBAR (ESPANA)" and
"32 LONG CTG" on the other side of the barrel.
On the side, below the hammer, in an oval logo, it says,
"RUBY EXTRA" and below the logo it says,
"MARCO REGISTRADA".
On the butt it says "MADE IN SPAIN"
It has several proof marks on it including a circle with an "R" inside it and a crown on top.

Anybody know any more information on this? Or a web site where I can look up more information?

Thanks for your help!

Thanks

Great, I will check the Curio And Relic forum. The revolver is swing out. I searched for Ruby Spain Relover on Yahoo and found a note that inferred France's military used a revolver class called Ruby that had several contractors from around Europe. That may be why it sounded familiar.
Thanks for all the info.

Thanks again.

Thank you, Bfoster, I checked out the C&R Forum and found a bunch of info, but I had not gleaned that information about the proof mark date!
I don't know that my father-in-law ever fired a round through the gun. I'm still debating whether to only display it myself.
I really appreciate all your help!
