I stumbled upon a pocket gun.
http://www.geocities.com/bipr88/Bipr8_page.html

This is a 7 shot. There is a picture of a guy with longish hair and a beard on both sides of the grips. It has a fold up trigger and the #26894 on the butt. It is hammerless and reads:
R A I D F: Cal:22-230 Syst. Hamerless on the top of the gun right above the cylinder.

Any idea what this is? Looks really cheap, just curious.

Thanks
*I tried to put the picture on Hunt101 as recomended below, but the picture was too may bytes or something like that.

I don't have a clue, so I guess that makes me clueless, but I'll bet someone will know.
Is this one you own?

The generic names are Pocket Revolvers and Baby Hammerless Revolvers.

They were made all over the world. In Europe they also referred to them as bicycle guns. The story goes that stray dogs were so bad at the turn of the century (1900's) that bicyclist carried those small revolvers to shoot the dogs that were always chasing and trying to bite them.

Does it have any proof marks? That would give a clue as to it being foreign made.

Kolb and later Sedley made a 7 shot .22 hammerless revolver, but the ones I have seen do not look like the photograph you posted.

I don't have access to my reference materials this weekend. I will see what I can find on Monday.

I've got a little Baby Hammerless myself. I'll have to post a pic of it sometime. The research I did on it indicated that there were many small european manufacturers of these type pistols.
