Hi guys, a friend of mine just picked up this small revolver. It has the crown over "U" proof, is serial numbered, and is marked Cal .320.

I would suspect that it is German with the crown "U" proof, but am not familiar with the config. There are no other markings on it such as makers mark or the like. We have not taken the grips off to see if there are any marks there.

take care,

Mr Hainey,

Awhile back I did a post on a B&A pistol in the Central Powers & accessories column, the pistol of your friend looks very similar

B & A pistol

Do a search here and you will be able to read the responses from the post

Mr Hainey

If you have the technical abilities please move the photo's of mine up to yours or visa versa.

The only information I have been able to find out in Canada from our firearms center is that mine is the second one registered within the Canadian Firearms registry and the first one is a single shot pistol.

I had to go to a lot of trouble to have it registered into the system in the hopes of obtaining some more info on the pistol.

As to what are these puppies I guess they are just that puppies as they are known as velodogs.

will continue to try and find out more info in the coming months as our largest gunshows are in the spring in these parts.

I came accross some interesting info last night in cartridges of the world. There is a cartridge called the .320, and it originated in the UK in the 1880's. If I get a chance, I will post here from the book. Is it possible that these wer German Mfg'd in the Brit .320 caliber for export?

take care,
