    Can anyone help with the identification of this gun? Maybe a Webley English Bulldog. It has a fold away trigger. I recently picked up 10 guns from an old timer down the street.

    The only way that gun ever saw the White Cliffs of Dover was in someones pocket:), it is not a Webley. If you pull the cylinder you may find proof marks on the cylinder face. I think you will find ELG in an oval. It looks to be a Belgium version of the popular Bulldog. It looks to be a Belgium self defence revolver form the late 1800s to the early 1900s, made literally by the boat load for sale in Europe and the U.S. It doesn't appear to be in very good condition, as such the value would probably not exceed 100 dollars.
    the various markings on these guns can sometimes reveal the maker ( sometimes) and a time frame. If you will post clear pictures of all the markings perhaps someone will be able to give you more information.

    Thanks Ron. It isn't in very good shape. Part of a lot that I bought American Picker style.
    10 guns + 1 .45 frame and slide. $200.00

    The safety indicates it was probably made in or for sale in Germany, which required those revolvers to have safeties.

    No matter what its origin, it is one of tons of small revolvers of that type made in Europe in the 1880-1910 time and selling for the equivalent of $3-4. They are in the same category as cheap American revolvers of the same general era. In top condition there is a mild collector interest; that one is probably worth under $75.
