I have no idea, do you?

It's a .25 ACP and I've not shot it.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

No markings on it Cane? I'd guess Raven Arms but there are so many manufactures of those little pistols. Any idea how old it is?

Robo, only you would call that GB a "compact" pistol.

I've been all over the little bugger. Nothing, not even a s/n.

It would be a great drop piece.

I've got some ammo, think I'll clean it up and try it out.

It's a Grand-dad hand-me-down. My guess is it's from the 1930s or earlier.

.41 Rimfire, I found it in an empty lot I purchased. It had two fired rounds and 3 live rounds loaded in it. I think it was probably used in a crime a century ago. Other than the symbol on the grips it has no other markings remaining. I have no idea what it is

7.65mm (.32 ACP) Sauer & Sohn 38H. My grandfather removed this from a Nazi officer and requested permission to bring it back to the U.S. It is still functional and I have shot it. From what I understand it is rare to get one with the grips in good condition (the plastic was known to break). I have the holster and original ammo it was loaded with as well as the paper work from the United States European Theater.

I had to take it out of a no rust bag filled with grease for the picture, that's why it is so juicy looking.

canebrake, I think your's is a French or Spanish ruby pistol; they were made in 6.35mm (25 ACP) to 7.65mm (32 ACP). It is a copy of the Colt 1908 vest pocket model. The lack of sights and the unique slide serrations give it away.

The were made by Gabilondo Y Urresti (known today as Llama Gabilando y Cia) or Gregorio Bolimburu (I think I spelt it right).
There were many, many variations made by this company; however, I do not remember a stainless model.
The French one was called the Regina:

Notice the slide serrations

Go to this site to see many known copies of the pistol (http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Ruby_pistol)

That's odd, even the junk gun makers (not saying this one is) always mark there pistols. Could it be a proto type/first off? If so it would be fun task to try and find the maker. Good luck!

Here's a couple of mine...not all that rare but you don't see them very often. the revolver is an Interarms Dragoon SAA .357 from the 70's and the Vis Radom p-35 is late wwII.
