8mm with 2" octagonal-to-round barrel. Blued and nickel finish. Bottom barrel flat and ring trigger marked with a sideways 7 and the number 99. The left barrel flat marked with the serial number 044. The lower left of the grip is marked MADE IN ITALY. Unique late 19th century Italian designed, magazine fed, squeeze cocking palm pistol that relies upon the action of squeezing the projecting ring to operate the action, load a round into the chamber and fire the pistol.
Fine overall retaining lots of original blue, with some fading and loss on the frame, and even more original nickel. Some minor oxidized flecking present on the barrel. Mechanically functional, very good bore. A fine example of a scarce firearms curiosa palm pistol.
If you are purchasing a firearm that requires an FFL or C&R and you do not have one, we can transfer the gun to a firearms dealer of your choice. We will transfer and ship the firearm to them, and they will then transfer it to you. Any charges for this service (which may include a background check) are between you and the dealer. If you come to Cowan’s in person to pick up your purchase(s), we can transfer a long gun to you directly. Handguns can only be transferred to Ohio residents.
