    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.
