French phosphated HSc
« on: February 08, 2020, 06:57:00 AM »
A nice example of a French phosphated HSc with a pinned lanyard loop at the bottom of the frame.


The color goes from green to a dull black.

That change in color of the phosphate is pretty neat

Any thoughts on how it got in that condition?   


I also have a French made phosphate but mine doesn't have the lanyard loop. The finish has held up pretty good. Mine has a couple black spots but this one looks like a piece of phosphate chipped off. It's black under the phosphate.

I think its just general wear from use.


It is also not impossible that the guns acquired several coats during service.
