More M1870 & M1882 Belgian Comblain:


Note the TWO screws on this side of the receiver.  Most Brazilian Comblains, for example, are modified with a third keeper screw above the larger action pivot screw.



"Brevete" is the Belgian (French?) word for "Patent".  This was Comblain's patent.

This Belgian Comblain, was manufactured by A. Francotte A Liege (in Liege, Belgium).
I believe that every Comblain was manufactured in Liege, but by no fewer than 6 seperate manufacturers, perhaps several more!
