    My grandfather passed away and left us this handgun. There is no markings on it except the initials UB on top near the chamber. Could someone help identify this single shot gun? Thank you.

    It looks to be one of the older Olympic Free Pistols, with those twin triggers & special rear sight.

    Which brand...I have no idea. Hopefully someone else has more info on it.

    Maybe remove the forearm and grip to check for concealed markings?
    Nice workmanship. Puts me in mind of the late 19th century parlor pistols, but better made and larger.
    What caliber is it? Centerfire or rimfire?
