11mm DANISH ORDNANCE REVOLVER M.1865/97

Denmark used their Model 1865 Lefaucheux-Francotte Pinfire Revolver, but in 1897 these revolvers were converted to center-fire with the adoption of the M1865/97 Danish Ordnance Revolver, 1865 being the date the revolver was adopted and 1897 being the date of conversion. These conversions were done by Kronberg Gevaerfabrik and these guns remained in service through WW2. There was a very good article written about the Danish Ordnance Revolver and its similarities to the 11.35mm Shouboe Rimmed cartridge in IAA 488. (Erlmeier, Brandt Ref. 159).
