Question Pistol for ID

Hello,

Firearms are not my target for collection but I agreed to help a friend identify this one. This pistol was purchased in a Vienna, Austria antique shop in 2005. It needs cleaning but all parts are present and appear to be in working order. I did not attempt to disassemble it for fear of not getting it back together correctly!

I'm attaching a few photos. Please let me know if you'd like to see other pictures or any of these in close-up or higher resolution.

Thank you in advance for any thoughts and guidance you might provide!

Best Regards,

Dave A.

Hola:

Me parece que es una burda imitación. El pié de gato (cock) no podría sujetar ninguna piedra . El rastrillo (frizzen) está construido de una lamina, doblada convenientemente. La oreja de fijación del muelle (spring) es simplemente, una parte achatada.

Todo a pesar de las incrustaciones con plata en la madera (stock) y los grabados al ácido en las partes metálicas.

AHi

I think it's a cheap imitation. The cat's foot (cock) could not hold any stone. The rake (frizzes) is constructed of a sheet, folded properly. The ear attachment of the spring (spring) is simply a flat part.

Yet despite the silver inlays in wood (stock) and etched in the metal parts.

Sincerely. Fernando K


Diccionariofectuosamente. Fernando K

Yes, a tourist bazaar piece, Turkish or North African.

Agreed. A Tourist/bazaar piece that was never made to fire. Just decorative. Rick.
