No idea on the pistol. In the future, need to keep that big toe out of your pictures. Someone could be eating dinner while on this site.

The name Chicago was used by a few different companies, but I think yours was made by Merden, and sold by a hardware company- I THINK Fred Bifar, but am on the road right now (Pittsburgh) and away from my references.
