The marks are most likely proof marks from Europe. Most(or at least a lot) of these guns had screw-off barrels. It is VERY hard to say if it is a reproduction without a close in hand examination. I have made many replacement parts look old to match the guns I fitted them to. With a good close-up of the proof marks we might be able to date the gun or at least say what country it came from. Or you can google "gun proof marks" to investigate for yourself.

Go to this site. Look at Lots 813 and 773. Your gun is more the size of the gun in 813 (seems like), it's definitely smaller than lot 773. However, your gun looks more like the style of the one in 773. I'm sure 773 isn't a "Muff pistol" or screw-barrel or whatever we've decided to call yours, but it looks like yours in the sense that it looks like the bigger brother.

Also, look at this one and this one.

players88, the only difference I see between 813 and yours is the shape of the grip. Lot 813 I linked you to seems to have a more "squared-off" grip shape.
