Just got this one last weekend for the collection. Only problem is is that it had a broken spring that hold the ejector rod in but I got it at a decent price.

It just keeps the rod from falling out. Basically just a small leaf spring. If I can get the screw out I might be able to make one out of a recoil spring from a chainsaw or measuring tape.

That is one of the things that fascinated me about the Bodeo, is the number of Manufacturers (including Spanish ) you could go broke just trying to cvollect
all the variations..

Here. It is actually pretty rough machining on the inside. The drop safety is not broken but it does flop around.

The B is on my list as well. Would like to get a display of revolvers to compliment my carcano collection.
