Either you have to "read" the gun markings to us or show us much closer photos of the top of barrel and rib, where most of the 1900 era pocket pistols were manufacturer marked.    Grips are often interchanged on these old guns....because they were gutta percha and easily broken or chipped.

good luck, GJ

H&R, $100 if it's tight and locks up "in time". The bolt stop on a lot of these older top breaks doesn't lock into a notch in the cylinder, but rather the pawl pushes the cylinder up against bolt stop and holds it in place against the open ended notch. They're usually somewhat loose, even new, and tend to wear relatively rapidly.
