Just a matter of time. You might want to re-post in a bit. If the thread is new it has more chance of grabbing attention.

It is for sure NOT a s&w model 3 which is a single-action gun. yours is double-action. The ELG in a crest like circle means it was proofmarked in Belgium. There was many inexpensive guns made in Europe and imported over here in the last hundred years or so. Yours was one of them. I would guess the age at 110 to 80 years old. You will most likely never find the actual manufacturer's name. The were not proud of it or they would have put their name on it.

Callahan- as the man said- ELG in an oval is the proofmark of the Belgian national proofhouse in Liege Belgium. At one time, everyone in Belguim except the Prime Minister was making PARTS for guns (or so it seemed). This guy made hammers, that lady made triggers, etc etc etc, and THIS guy put them together and sold them. Hundreds of producers, thousands of contributors. Most were low to moderate quality, low price.
