Question Pistol for ID


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.

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.


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

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

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