Hello, Never saw one like this before.

The Lanyard ring resembles the lanyard ring on a number of Danish Revolvers, so I would guess it could be Danish.

Is the end of the barrel threaded, can't tell from the picture ? It could be a tear gas pistol.
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians.


I am still looking for ANY information regarding the European Use of the Original Costons flares from 1859 through 1881. Photo's, Patents, contracts & orders, ANY INFORMATION IS NEEDED ! !

The end of the barrel is threaded. Yes, very likely it is a tear gun.
May your collection grow and prosper.

Some more info: its marked "pedro alcorta elgoibar", being a Spanish gunmaker from around 1910. the caliber of the barrel is aprox 14mm, with a rimmed cartige. The back of the frame has a hole to possibly fit a metal stock.
