Thanks for all the info, truly interesting,
The pistol is a plainbelly Sneetch-- no stars upon thars.
What would the stars mean?
Again, thanks, this is such an informative group.
IIRC the stars indicate usage/adoption by the French Army in WWI. There would be two, on the bottom of the butt, spaced a lil apart from one another. Despite the gun being Spanish in manufacture, many were used by the French forces in WWI.
