Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 11008

Question:

Ron- I just recently like today discovered your site. My question is on two different guns. I have a D. D. Levaux 32 cal. top break pistol, folding trigger with gold inlay and engraving. The barrel is marked C. ALBALADEJO Y Ca on one side of the barrel and SAN MARTIN 18 BUENOS-AYRES on the other side, any idea of who he was and the value? The other gun is related to Ron Gibb's question on 5/16/08 referring to William Raubs. I have a Raubs BB or pellet gun, St. Louis style.How often or how many do you think a what I believe was a black powder gunsmith (Raubs) made BB or pellet guns? How much would you say it is worth. Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. John

Answer:

D.D. Levaux worked in Liege Belgium and was a patentee of revolvers in the early 1870's. These guns were made by Etablissments Levaux until the end of the 19th century. William Raubs of New York City was active from 1862 to 1877 and made spring-air Gallery guns in addition to firearms.
