    Default Identification Help Make / Model / Time Period

    Hello everyone, I am looking for some assistance in identifying a double barrel break action pistol. This was in the family and I know nothing about it.

    hoping someone can assist in identifying Make, Model, and rough time period of production. Thank you all in advance.

    Underlever double barrel percussion pistol. !840s-60s?
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Your thumbnail won't expand--so "really tiny pistol"? Is it pinfire, rimfire or centerfire? Look close for a small oval with the letters
    E, L and G in it, with maybe a crown. That would make it Belgian. Double barrel pistols of this type were made in Europe from roughly
    the 1840's through the early 1900's, and continued to be made in South America into the mid 1900's.

    It appears to be center fire. I can not locate any markings as described on it. Garrucha was recommended as what it could be but I have not found any with any details in this configuration.

    Here is one that is close. Made in Belgium. You may never find out the Who/When/Where on yours--
