    Stumps me. Any markings or proof marks? I am virtually certain it is not Steyr; Spain would be more like it.

    It looks like the Belgian N. Pieper Model C, as well as the Belgian "Vici" made by Henrard & Discry circa 1920 -1925, although neither of them had a grip safety. However, if your pistol has no proof marks it is most likely Spanish, circa 1910 - 1930.

    By the way. Is it the shadow of the image or does this pistol have no trigger in the trigger guard?

    I assumed it was triggerless because someone removed the trigger (for whatever reason) and lost it.

    I bet when you squeeze the handle, when the lever behind the grip is depresed the pistol will fire! Just my thought.

    So your thumb goes in the trigger guard, your trigger finger is on the grip thingy and then you fire. Sounds like a cartoon gun I saw somewhere on here. The barrel points at the shooter like a gun built backwards..;):eek:

    No... No... Finger in the trigger guard. Your thumb works the grip-trigger, silly. It shoots around corners... And the empty is ejected into your mouth so you don't leave brass at the scene. :D
