I have had a couple of SIMILAR guns (ejector mechanism is somewhat distinctive) that did have Belgian proofs- two velo dogs and 2 in .320 European Revolver caliber. A lot of the Belgian guns used a fluting that was closed at both ends- most is open at the front end.

Not a guarantee, just an indicator.

And BETTER PICTURES would help (HINT!)
Alright, thank you, now i need to do even more research on this little thing.

Wow! Thanks a lot to everyone! All I knew about it before now was that my grandfather "removed" it from a German boy that tried to use it on him. I assumed it was a military issue boot gun for the Germans. Now, i guess the assumption should be that this was the kids personal gun that he brought to the field.

Thanks again!
