    I recently purchased a number of WW II items for my collection and found this gun buried in the bottom of one of the boxes, was wondering if anyone might know what it is?

    Looks like a little folding trigger rimfire, probably a .22 or .32 and European. 1870/90s. Looks like the loading gate broke off. There were many made in Belgium and they went all over the world. Though that bird beak stock looks very American, my money is on Belgium. They sold for around $1.00.

    I think the ejector rod should be pushed home inside the arbour (cylinder pin).

    I have one that is almost identical. A serviceman brought it home from Belgium. Mine is centerfire and about .30 caliber. Years ago I made a cartridge from a .32S&W brass and fired it once with a very light charge of Bullseye powder. The barrel and frame on mine are all one piece of metal. Yours appears to be open above the cylinder where mine has a topstrap.
