Very, uh, French.
There was a gunsmith, since deceased, who would undertake to roll the bulge out and reline the barrel. You'd probably have had to have the engraving touched up, though.

I don't know about that. I have a couple of engraved guns that I shoot. One is very worn, a shadow of its old self, but the fine scroll is still attractive.
The other is a modern stainless steel .38; a nice coat pocket gun.
