    At least that is what I believe it to be. I am not able to post pictures so I will do my best to describe it. There is nothing marked on the gun anywhere I can find that would give a manufacturer or model number. There is however a serial no. stamped on the bottom of the butt; 0013xxx. The barrels are in an over/under configuration and after you fire the top barrel the hammer can be put at half-cock and the barrel assy rotated 180deg to fire the other. When the barrel rotation reaches 90deg it will pull foreward about 1/2 of an inch allowing you to place the caps on the nipples in the rear of each barrel. The barrel assemblies are about 3 3/8 inch long. The grips are plastic pearl looking material with each side being held on with a seperate screw. There is no trigger guard, the trigger pops foreward from the frame when it is cocked. The barrels are smooth bore.
    That is about all I know to tell about the gun, except that for as old as it looks to me it appears in pretty good shape. I really don't know if I would want to shoot it or not. I guess if it is not anything with any real value I might try, after having it checked by a gunsmith to make sure it is safe.
    Thanks in advance, Jim.
