The Bodeo Model 1889 revolver was invented by Italian firearm designer Carlo Bodeo. It was produced by a wide variety of manufacturers between 1889 and 1925, and was also produced in Spain from 1915 to 1918. It was employed by the Royal Italian Army in World War I, the Interwar Italian colonial wars, and World War II.



The Italians nicknamed this revolver coscia d’agnello ("leg of lamb"). During World War II the Wehrmacht designated the Bodeo Revolver 680 when utilized as an alternative firearm.-

The Bodeo was based on the earlier Model 1874 Chamelot-Delvigne service revolver. It is a double-action revolver, with some models having a folding trigger.
