Very interesting Trez. I like the stag grip on the top one.

Here's an interesting one I no longer have. Allen & Wheelock .22 lipfire 7 shot side hammer. It was made in 1858.

I have one .25 Cal lipfire round in my collection- along with a couple of teatfires, cupfires, ect. Strange little detour in gun design. The .22 single shots are Warnant/ Flobert type pistols- made for BB/ CB caps ONLY- a short may cause them to self disassemble.

A short would disassemble that A&W. I saw it happen to one very much like it.

if the gun reads 'FCA DE ARETIO VITORIA" than your gun is made in Spain ,probably 11mm ,it could be a copy of a "known" gun maker,made by a French or Belgian gunshop ,dates around 1860, any proofmarks or text you can read on this pistol? smoothbore or rifled barrel?

Lipfire? I'm gonna have to go read up on that one. It sounds like something you catch off the overly friendly cheerleader in Jr. High.

edit* Yup, that is an odd one. http://www.cartridgecollectors.org/glossary.htm interesting page
