Help with IDing pocket pistol

Recommended Posts

Picked this up st gun show today. No msker on it.  .32 centerfire. Folding trigger, Double/single action. 

 

Has a crown over M A Proof mark, and eitherva C or G offset from proofmark. Seller thought it was made in France, but was not sure. He said he shot it once. Gun appears to function perfectly. I’m a sucker for old pocket pistols, so could not resist for $180!

 

correction. Not 32, I tried to load a 32SW, 2 big. Maybe 7MM or something? 

 

anybody know anything about it?

I agree. Aged ivory grips.

 

And I’m gonna shoot it!

I don’t know what it is, but I like it. Let me know first when you get tired of it and want your money back.

That one is very similar. Mine has a knurled screw head on left side for disassembly, octagonal barrel, and a post sight.

There were a lot of these "bulldog" DA only revolvers made in Great Britain and Belgium.  The quality (and hence the safety) of these guns varied from excellent to less safe than a kid's toy cap pistol.  My late father brought one back after WWII.  It was Belgian, and lacked a few parts.  I was able to find enough to have it function, but have never attempted to shoot it.

Do a chamber cast and figure out the cartridge it takes, may help with the ID.

Given the octagon barrel , it looks to be a Belgian made Bulldog.
