My mother in law got this gun from her father. He had brought it back from WWII. Any information you all can give me would be appreciated. On the slide it says

Pretty sure it's French. But that's all I've got.

I got nothing but I am sure C3shooter or Canebrake will be along soon with all you'll need to know! :D

ATLAS Pocket pistol

This is where I found information

Pretty sure it's not an Atlas.

It's a lot like one of the "baby Brownings" isn't it, probably a competitor.

It's a French made variation of the "Ruby pistols" made during WW1. You'd need more info on serial numbers and markings to find specific manufacturer because during that time it's was mainly individual gunsmiths that would make them. Breveté S.G.D.G. (sans garantie du gouvernement) in English means Patent Without Guarantee of the Government. If you can give more info I can try to narrow it down more.

A rip off of a baby browning. The stylized "H" is intended to look like the "FN" on the genuine article. Such knock offs were common in France and (especially) Spain up to WWII.

There is a small symbol.stamped on yhe slide that is too worn to make out, but is framed by what looks like "MARQUE" on top and "DEPOSEE" or " JEPOSEE" on the bottom.
