Manhurin MR 73
The original MR 73 is expensive to produce. It is made from the same piece of forged steel for the frame, barrel and cylinder. Its life expectancy exceeds 200 000 rounds. This one is special because it has a 4" barrel, fixed sights and a phosphate finish. It is used by some units such as Gendarmerie and French Marines Reco squads. It is still produced today the same way but if customers want to pay less they buy the MR88, F1 or 96.
